If you’re not grey, where are you?

I know that you use the library.. .I’ve seen you! I haven’t felt so young in a while… If you’re a thrusting young professional™, who likes the local library, then where the hell were you? Seriously – that meeting was packed, but barely a soul there was under fifty. Which is fine, but it was a week night – a Tuesday for god’s sake! You can’t all have been at Pilates?! Anyway… Despite the curious demographic slope, the meeting was an interesting affair.

Book clubs in Blackheath

Book Club at Blackheath Village Library
Clare emailed a while back, asking if there were any reading groups in Blackheath. I knew that there was one based at the library, but couldn’t remember the details. As I went to renew a book a few days ago, sure enough on the counter was all the information that you would need –

First edition of Brideshead Revisited, from wikipediaThere’s a book club held at the library on the first Thursday of each month, between 6.30pm-7.30pm. Last month they were reading Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh.

This contradicts what is written on Greenwich council’s page about reading groups – they claim that it is held at 7pm on the occasional Monday. Lewisham’s effort mentions a reading group, but doesn’t say when it is… At least it doesn’t send you there on the wrong day!

So, if you do go along, please let me know how it is, how many people are there, and whether the first Thursday of the month is the right date!
