Come and join the

EuroMayenne Reading Group

We share a love of books !

This EuroMayenne group is for members to get together each month to discuss a book that they have all just read.

It  will encourage you to read more books and books that you might not normally choose.

The reasons that people give for joining a reading group include reading a wide variety of books, making friends, having fun, meeting like-minded people and stimulating the brain cells!

So please come and join us for our fourth year in this venture.


All dates are subject to current Government and Local Authority restrictions regarding Coronavirus Covid-19 and subject to change or cancellation.

NEXT MEETING:  on WEDNESDAY 28 APRIL 2021 at 2:30pm

The next meeting will be online (a link will be sent out nearer to the day)

Book titles – see table below. 


Please let Pam or Kathy know (contact details at the bottom of this page) at least one week in advance if  you will be going.


The Books:
