Last night the Quercus Book Conversations group, all 12 of us met, for our last meeting for 2017. This is an informal ‘get together’ of like minded readers who meet on the first Tuesday of the month at the Quercus Bookshop to share what we have been reading for the month, over a glass of wine and some food. It is always a delightful evening; relaxed, friendly and a great way to influence our next exciting read. As I always say; “it is a great book group; you don’t have to have read anything and you don’t even have to come”. Hey, how relaxed is that!!
As we were finishing up, the next Quercus Book Club arrived for their end of year get together. We washed the wine glasses, handed over leftover food and showed them to the Quercus garden where they were meeting. This group of dedicated readers meet monthly at the bookshop to discuss their nominated book for the month
Following the Quercus Book Conversations, David and I popped into the Empire for a glass of wine and some of their delicious bar snacks. There was yet another group of Beechworth readers celebrating a 2017 filled with great reads and many inspiring discussions.
It was clearly a night for the book clubs that meet regularly in Beechworth to celebrate the time they have spent together over 2017, enjoying books, reading and discussion. Great to know that books and reading is a much loved past-time of many Beechworthians!
Do give us a call at the Quercus Bookshop on 0357282388 if you would like to know more about these book groups for 2018
