The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust's Bell Library and Knowledge Hub has launched its first book club and we are called the Royal Readers Book Club.
We would like to invite anyone who is already an avid reader and those who are just curious about what book worms talk about (you may be surprised!) to join our meetings.
During these unsettling times, we could all do with the kind of escapism that books can offer and we aim for these get togethers to be very relaxed and enjoyable. The details of our next meeting are as follows:
This month's title choice is Lessons by Ian McEwan.
We have purchased some new fiction books for you to enjoy so check out what is now available New Fiction Books December 2021
At The Reading Agency we work every day towards a world where everyone is reading their way to a better life.
As part of the Health and Wellness week, the Health Education England donated 10 uplifting books to each NHS library. Many of them are in the Top Ten Book Club reads. You can find them on the library catalogue under Uplifting Reads.
