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 next meeting of the KGH Book Club will be on: –  Monday, 9th March 12.00-12.45.  We will be discussing ‘The Baltimore Boys’ by Joel Dicker.

The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. That was what they called Marcus Goldman and his cousins Woody and Hillel. Three brilliant young men with dazzling futures ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years, Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the true and astonishing story of the Baltimore Boys.

The April meeting is on: –  Monday, 20th April 12-12.45. We will be discussing ‘The Century Girls’ by Tessa Dunlop.

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

 

Leadership Book Club

Please join us for the next meeting of the ‘Leadership book club’ on Thursday, 19 March,  in Seminar 3, PWEC at 12:00-13:00.  We will be discussing the book:

Start with why: how great leaders inspire everyone to take action by Simon Sinek (page 133 to end)
