Book Clubs

KGH BOOK CLUBS

We have two book clubs 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. We are always open to new members

 

The next meeting is on: –  Monday, 13th July, 19.30. We will be meeting virtually and are discussing ‘Where the crawdads sing’ by Delia Owen. If you would like to join us please email m.theaker@nhs.net for details.

For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand.

 

Kya is a compelling character, Owen’s descriptive prose is lushly impressive, and the twist in the narrative’s tail is neat, Sunday Times Culture

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 23rd July at 20.00. This will be a virtual meeting. If you would like to join us please email m.theaker@nhs.net.

We will be discussing

The Chimp Paradox by Steve Peters  p.1-227.

Do you sabotage your own happiness and success? Are you struggling to make sense of yourself? Do your emotions sometimes dictate your life?

The Chimp Paradox is an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you become a happy, confident, healthier and more successful person.

There are videos by Steve Peters online if you are short on time for reading.
