Glittering Prizes Reading Group

Current Membership Status : Waiting List - please apply.

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

We read current fiction and non-fiction from Short Lists of British and International Prizes from the last 2 years. It is a discussion group based on the exploration of books on these Prize Lists, books which sometimes may be challenging and controversial. Some books selected may not be what one might call a comfortable read, but more of a springboard into different aspects of current literature, cultures, and the human condition. The discussion and the exchange of varying views, is what makes the group dynamic. The books are chosen by consensus.

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

Our schedule:

December meeting (Christmas extravaganza) Tuesday 11th December 'Less' by Andrew Sean Greer - WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION 2018

January meeting Tuesday 8th January 2019 'My Name is Lucy Barton' by Elizabeth Strout . New York Time Bestseller, Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017
