WHITESTONE BOOK CLUB

In a change from the norm, we were given a selection of poetry books for our last meeting. Some were mixed anthologies and some were collections from single poets but the variety proved interesting and led to a lively discussion. It was good to encounter new writers (new to us!) such as local poet James Turner and the American Billy Collins, mixed in with stalwarts such as Don Paterson, Carol Ann Duffy, Maya Angelou and Simon Armitage. Most of us found poems to appreciate and with which we could identify.

In contrast our next book is a hefty tome, “The Golden Notebook” by Nobel Prize-winning author Doris Lessing. Having read, enjoyed and admired much of her work, I had carefully avoided this one, never really finding the time. Now is the moment!

Next meeting: 8th July


The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing
