Book Clubs

KGH BOOK CLUBS

We have two book clubs currently being run at KGH – one sharing leisure reading and the other looking at books themed around leadership.

General Book Club 

We meet most months to discuss a nominated book but also to revel in books, reading and sharing ideas. Please come and join us – we are always open to new members

 

The April meeting is on: –  Monday, 20th April 19.30. We will be meeting virtually and are discussing ‘The Century Girls’ by Tessa Dunlop. If you would like to join us please email m.theaker@nhs.net for details.

In 2018 Britain celebrated the centenary of some women getting the vote. The intervening ten decades have witnessed staggering change, and The Century Girls features six women born in 1918 or before who haven’t just witnessed that change, they’ve lived it.  With stories that are intimately knitted into the history of the British Isles, this is a time-travel epic.

‘A delightful book . . . all about women and women’s lives.’ Jane Garvey, Radio 4 Woman’s Hour​

 

Please come and join us for a chat about this book ….or just books in general.

Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gift of seeing the world through their eyes” Neil Gaiman, 2014

Drive: the surprising truth about what motivates us by Daniel Pink

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people – at work, at school, at home. It is wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today’s world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and the world. Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation, and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.
