Book Club

On Monday afternoons Leeds Combined Arts provide a Book Group.

This is made up of a small group of people who enjoy reading aloud. All reading is done within the 2 hour session which includes a 15 minute break for refreshments. All who wish, have a turn to read a chapter aloud, however members are also welcome to come along and listen if they do not wish to read.

At the Meanwood Institute Green Road, Meanwood LS6 4LD.

THE HIMALAYAN SUMMER is a spellbinding novel of the British Raj period, the quest to find a child, and a love story beyond boundaries - for all fans of THE TEA PLANTER'S WIFE and of Louise Brown's earlier novel, EDEN GARDENS. Ellie Jeffreys arrives in Darjeeling with her British husband, en route to Kathmandu. They have ten-month-old, golden-haired twins, and despite appearing to be a happy family, Ellie's relationship with the overbearing, philandering Francis is disintegrating. At a cocktail party, Ellie meets Hugh Douglas, a maverick explorer and botanist. Despite the rumours surrounding Hugh, Ellie is drawn to him. A year later, Nepal is devastated by a catastrophic earthquake and in a falling building; Ellie is forced to make an instant, and terrible, decision: she has time to save only one of her children. When she returns for her son's body the next day, it has gone. Ellie knows he cannot have disappeared; someone somewhere has her child, and it is to Hugh that she turns for help.

All welcome to read or just sit and listen to others. Entrance £2.50 including tea /coffee and refreshments.
