Katherine House FCJ Salford

A Christian Conference and Retreat Centre

Book Club

Last Tuesday of the month,  2.00 - 3.30pm 

The group enjoys sharing well-loved books, poetry and prose. 

On alternate months the group discusses a book which everyone reads beforehand. For the months in between, members bring a poem on a set subject and share it with the group. We have a friendly group of regulars and people who just come for the poetry or because they like a particular book. 

If you want to share a poem please bring 10 copies. If you want to discuss a book, please read it beforehand. 

Please see our leaflet for our books and poetry themes till July 2018 

Led by Stephen Harrington, who has spent most of his life teaching English in schools and universities, and enjoys nothing more than discussing poetry and prose with interested and enthusiastic others
