Independent Age is promoting a fantastic idea called ‘Live Wires’. Live Wires gives you the chance to discuss books, films and more over the telephone in the comfort of your own home. Every four to six weeks a group of about six people meet up over the phone at an arranged time – they call you so there is no cost involved.
If you join a book group a reading list will be sent out to you. The group will choose a book which they would like to read and discuss in their next call.
The reading list includes:
- A Spectacle of Dust: An Autobiography by Pete Postlethwaite
- Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer
- The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory
“This has been a great joy to me and I thank you for having started this book club.”
If books are not your thing you can join one of their discussion groups. The groups discuss all sorts from the royal family to recent day trips, hobbies, cooking or even what’s been on TV.
