Welcome to 2021 Bearbrass Book Group update. We are all set for an interesting year of book discussions and anticipating that many of these meetings will be held ‘face to face’, either in member’s homes or at a local café, over coffee or lunch.
The first book for this year is “The Dictionary of Lost Words” by Pip Williams. It weaves fiction with historical fact to create thought-provoking reading about the power of language while also delving into some late 19thCentury history. The story is based on the compilation of the Oxford Dictionary which was took place at the same time as the women’s suffragette movement in UK. ‘A definite’ to create great discussions and sharing of member’s interpretations and perspectives…Cate T .
