Walking Book Group

**Enjoy winter walking**

The Walking Book Group meets at York Explore, Museum Street, York at 11am on the third Thursday in the month. On January 20th, we will walk and talk about books on the theme of “Renewal”. Just turn up – everyone is welcome!

The theme for January is “Renewal“. New Year’s Resolutions, spring approaching – use your imagination to find a suitable book to read or reread.

Zoom meetings

For those unable to join the walk in person, there is an opportunity to discuss books on the same theme at a Zoom get-together. This is held at 6pm on the first Thursday of the month. Email alison.yorkbikebelles@gmail.com to book on and for reading suggestions.

About the Walking Book Group

A first for York, our monthly walks are a great opportunity to share and talk about interesting books you have read, meet friendly local people and discover easy walks, and the best cafes in York.

Three easy steps:

  • Read a book around a theme
  • Walk and talk about your book and hear about what others have read
  • Enjoy a chat in a cafĂ© afterwards

We offer some suggestions for books which come largely from our remote leader’s knowledge and love of books, but there is no requirement to read any of these, feel free to bring memories of your own reading around the theme.

If you are unable to join us to walk on account of location or previous commitments, you can also join by Zoom on the first Thursday in the month at 6pm for an hour by Zoom. The theme is the same as for the actual walkers and you will receive the reading suggestions each month.

We rely on donations and grants to fund our activities, which are offered free of charge to York residents. If you are able to support us, please do consider a donation. You can donate here.
