Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, March 1st, 2pm
Diaries and Letters
Kevin will give a presentation of diary and letter readings from some of our well known diarists and letter writers such as Pepys, Boswell, Waugh and Walpole.
At our February meeting James Vaux gave a very interesting and engaging illustrated talk on Icelandic literature, highlighting three stories set in different time periods. The three stories were:
Hrafnkel’s Saga (medieval), Iceland’s Bell (17/18th century tale,1943) and Black Skies ( contemporary crime fiction, 2009).
Robbie Grieve has decided to step down from the committee after many loyal years of service. She edited the now defunct newsletter for several years and has been a dedicated committee member. Simon Brett presented her with a bouquet of flowers at the November meeting in recognition of her long service and wished her well in her new life with family in Norfolk. She hopes to move in the Spring.
We are now, of course, looking for new volunteer committee members from the membership so please think about volunteering your services, especially if you have technology skills! Please talk to a committee member if you can help out.
