Current Membership Status : 1 place vacant - please apply.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic reading group based in the center of Cambridge UK.    

We read current fiction and non-fiction on Prize Lists from the last 2 years.  It is a discussion group based on exploration of these Prize Lists, which sometimes may be challenging and controversial.  Some books selected may not be what one might call 'good reads' but more of a springboard into different aspects of current literature.   

We meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 12 noon for 12:15 pm at a local Petersfield pub in Cambridge, the Cambridge Blue.

Our schedule:

May 2018 meeting : Tuesday  8th May, 'Home Fire' by Kamila Shamsie, New York Times Book of the Year 2017 
June 2018 meeting : Tuesday 12th June, 'A Country Road, A Tree' by Jo Baker Shortlisted James Tait Black Memorial Prize 2017
July 2018 meeting :  Tuesday 10th July, 'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' by Gail Honeyman, Sunday Times Best Seller 2017
August 2018 meeting Tuesday 14th August 'The Dry' by Jane Harper Winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award 2017
