Bookworms in Lockdown
- Being at home in lockdown has given most of us more time to read and if you would like to join a book group, Bookworms might be for you. We are now meeting in person again, in gardens when weather permits or in well ventilated houses. We read a book each month and share our thoughts along with refreshments. When accessing library books became more challenging, most people bought books online or read electronic versions. Hopefully, when we produce our list for 2022 we will try to ensure books are available in the library.
- Here are the books we will be reading over the next few months and do contact me if you would like to join us – you would most welcome.

Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell
On a summer’s day in 1596, a young girl in Stratford-upon-Avon takes to her bed with a fever. Her twin brother, Hamnet, searches everywhere for help. Why is nobody at home? Their mother, Agnes, is over a mile away, in the garden where she grows medicinal herbs. Their father is working in London. Neither parent knows that one of the children will not survive the week. Based on the life of Shakespeare.
