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 used to meet – over a glass of wine – in the Holy Name Hall, Towers Avenue, Jesmond, usually on the last Wednesday in the month at 7pm. However, since the lockdon our meetings are held on the Zoom digital platform.

If you wish to join the discussions, please contact Fr Campion. And please ensure you have read the book beforehand as the discussion is confined to the book, its plot, characterisation, narrative etc.


Our next meeting is on Wednesday 10 March will discuss ‘They Came Like Swallows’ by William Maxwell.
