Book Group

The Holy Name Book Club is open to all members of the community, no matter what their age or religion, who enjoy reading fiction. We meet – over a glass of wine – in the Holy Name Hall, Towers Avenue, Jesmond.

If you are joining us, please ensure that you have read the book beforehand as the discussion is confined to the book, its plot, characterisation, narrative etc.


The next meeting will be on Wednesday 30 October to discuss The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker.

The book choice for November is  Manhatten Beach by Jennifer Egan.

On 25 September 2019 we discussed Middlemarch by George Eliot; in July it was How Far Can You Go? by David Lodge; and in May we chose Robicheaux by James Lee Burke.
