Sitting in Catherine’s Good Room : Catherine, Ann, Sharon, Trish, Heidi, Gabrielle, Mary and Sandra
Skulking elsewhere : Katie, Heather, Ros, Lynette
Business : Mary to email everyone regarding the date of her next Reading Festival chez elle. Probably will be in October.
Discussion : We had a long and lively discussion, of course going completely off-piste at times. Some of us had read the book around the time it came out in 1987, for others it was a new discovery. The story of Sally Morgan’s family touched us greatly and the book scored highly at 4.1/5.
Next Meeting : We will be reading Julian Leatherdale’s Palace of Tears on Friday 2 September.
