We’ve been reading together across Leeds for over a decade now (meep) and have kept going despite the ‘all this’ of it all.
During the global pandemic, our book clubs won’t be meeting in person.
Instead, we will be holding our discussions via Zoom and this looks set to continue into 2021.
It’s practically the same as IRL. Delightful friendly people, zany weird tangents…though much more ‘you’re muted’ than before.
If you’d like to join in, please let me know via @LeedsbookClub or comment on the blog 🙂
