Walking Book Group

Join our walking book group in 2020! WE ARE MEETING VIA ZOOM DURING THE LOCKDOWN

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 café afterwards

We offer some suggestions for books which come largely from the library catalogue and our 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 on the theme.

We meet 11am, first Thursday of the month, online. Email alison.yorkbikebelles@gmail.com for details.

Everyone is welcome!

Thursday 1 October- theme is: Theatre

This month’s topic is a wide and varied one. Your interpretation. Also this month we are encouraging you to walk and tell us about your walking as well as your book at our October meeting. You might like to do the walking bingo as part of the York Walking Festival (5-13 September) https://www.itravelyork.info/homepage/145/york-walking-festival
