Monthly Archive for January, 2010


Welcome to the new Durham book group, held in the very lovely Leonard’s cafe in Fowler’s Yard – where the coffee is excellent and the cakes are really beyond tempting. This group will be held from 6pm-7.30pm on the second Monday of the month – the first one is on Feb 8th, when we will be discussing What Was Lost by Catherine O’Flynn. Please come along and join us: you will get a membership card which entitles you to various perks, plus the opportunity to discuss books, life and everything.

The group will feature a mix of fiction and poetry and our first meeting is on 8 February, when the book under discussion is What Was Lost by Catherine O’Flynn, which won the prestigious First Novel Award at the 2008 Costas. The book is about a disparate group of characters coming together over a missing girl and features a woman detective with a monkey on her shoulder! If you would like to join the group, contact or phone 0191 233 3850.
