The Bearbrass Book Group is going strong and after three meetings we have set a good standard of discussion, with friendly, insightful and informative exchange of interpretations and opinions of the books read and often, how they reflect our own lives. 
Last month we welcomed our newest member, Clive, to our group. The novel we discussed was “Bruny” by Heather Rose. It was part thriller, part political satire and even touched on Chinese political influence and ownership of key property assets in Australia. Once again, we had a robust discussion and left with more ideas and opinions than we had brought to the meeting. 
This month’s meeting is on the 19th October at 1.30pm. The book is “Burial Rites” by Hannah Kent. It is a true story of the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829, who is sent to an isolated farm to await execution. It raises some fundamental questions about truth, hypocrisy, inequality laying the foundations for a very good discussion.
Next month’s book is on the 15th November at 1.30. The book is “A Town Like Alice” by Neville Shute. 
We are considering running a December meeting on the 13th December, but are yet to select a book.
The club will continue into 2021 and hopefully we will be able to meet face to face for our discussions. There are still a few vacancies so if you are interested please email Cate -
