Afternoon Book Group: The afternoon book group are next meeting today, September 26, 2pm. September’s book is ‘White Man Falling’, by Mike Stocks. Being a comic novel set in contemporary India, it chronicles the catastrophes and miracles which befall retired policeman Swami, and shows how apparently meaningless events can sometimes produce meaningful effects in our lives. For further information of the book/group, please call Nicky on 01424 892474.
