CLASSIC BOOK CLUB: Precious Bane – Mary Webb

Wednesday 4th December from 7:30pm

Born at the time of Waterloo in the wild country of Shropshire, Prudence Sarn is a wild, passionate girl, cursed with a hare lip — her ‘precious bane’. Cursed for it, too, by the superstitious people amongst whom she lives. Prue loves two things: the remote countryside of her birth and, hopelessly, Kester Woodseaves, the weaver.

The tale of how Woodseaves gradually discerns Prue’s true beauty is set against the tragic drama of Prue’s brother, Gideon, a driven man who is out of harmony with the natural world.

The discussion will be led by Elizabeth Griffiths


BOOK CLUB: The Wall – John Lanchester

Wednesday 15th January 2020 from 7:30pm

Kavanagh begins his time patrolling the Wall. If he’s lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has to do two years of this. 729 more nights.

The best thing that can happen is that he survives and gets off the Wall and will never have to spend another day of his life anywhere near it. But what if something did happen – if the Others came, if he had to fight for his life? Thrilling and heartbreaking, The Wall is about a troubled world you will recognise as your own – and about what might be found when all is lost.

The discussion will be led by Jane Owen and Tim O’Kelly

Thursday 28th November, 6pm:  East Meon History Group

Book launch:  Farming The Valley

The glorious countryside and buildings of today’s East Meon are the result of thousands of years of farming, until recently the sole industry in the valley. From the Middle Ages this was the largest Hampshire estate of the diocese of Winchester, reaching to the Sussex border and beyond: its magnificent church and bishops’ palace were the centres of religious and feudal control. Strip farming in communal fields made way­­ to enclosed farms, oxen to horses, then machinery, natural tillage to artificial fertilisers.

Members of the History Group have researched life in the Hundred of East Meon: the great houses and successful farms in contrast with the insecurity and poverty of their labourers; colourful figures including the legendary millionaire recluse, the Dowager Countess Peel, and the penny-pinching Victorian vicar, the Rev Thomas Cook Kemp;  involvement in national events including the Black Death, the Civil War, Swing Riots and two World Wars; a portrait of life in a typical English rural community. Come and join us for a glass of wine and an opportunity to buy a signed copy as a Christmas gift.

Forthcoming events:

Roger Morgan-Grenville will be launching his next book Liquid Gold – Bees and the Pursuit of Midlife Honey on 5th March next year.  Copies will soon be available to pre-order here…

Book Doctor

An appointment with our book doctor makes a great gift - for a birthday or a wedding, or just to treat yourself or a friend.  Our personal service begins with a consultation usually lasting 30 minutes or so which includes coffee and a welcome pack, discussing your reading tastes and getting an idea of what you love most about books. We then send out a monthly book choice to any address in the UK (other destinations available on request).

Levitra Prices start at £60 for 6 months, or £120 for 12 months.
