Crime Book Club
The Book group has been 'going strong' since 2011 when L&D u3a began. We have covered about 30 books in the last 4 years.
We try to choose our books 3 months in advance (one per month) via a system of group members' recommendations, with occasional reference to Book Charts and Reviews.
The group is limited to a maximum of 10 members to allow each member the opportunity to contribute to the discussion. This is a benefit, as we find that a smaller number is better for meaningful discussions. As a treat there is usually a cup of coffee or tea with something tasty to accompany it.
“Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” – Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Group Leader's comments
"I have been delighted with the range of books that the group has read, many which I may not normally have selected. The group discussion can illuminate the books just by hearing the different points of view. If you love reading this is the group for you."
