Important Christmas Party info
Next meeting will be on Zoom on the 10th of December and it’s our Christmas Party!
Traditionally we’d be having a Curry in Khans, but this year thanks to the thing we’re being remote, so order your curry and settle down for an evening of book related festivities! if you’d like to take part in the optional Secret Santa follow the link below and add your details to the form before the 1st of December. Santa will then send you details of what to do next.
We’ll be deciding on our winter long read, so now is the time to prepare your pitch for that 1,000 page bonkbuster / cluematician epic you’ve been wanting to read for ages.
We’ll also decide on what the best book we read this year was, with our epic award. Might even do another post on that one.
