Thursday group

Meets on the third Thursday of the month from 6.00pm to 7.00pm

The Twilight Group's first meeting was in October 2005

Twilight reading Group will be celebrating their 10th Year together as a group in October 2015 they have told us that they appreciate the selection of books which the library provides, as it encourages them to read and discuss different genres of books . This often leads them  to read other novels by the same author. The ambience of the library is welcoming and is conducive to frank and free discussion of the novels set.

Books recently discussed by the Twilight group are: The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd and Sylvia Garland’s Broken Heart by Helen Harris.

If you would like to join either of these book groups, speak to a member of staff at Blackrod Library.
