Current Affairs Discussion Group

We now have some vacancies in the Current Affairs Discussion Group.
Basically, we’re a non- fiction book group who take it in turns to choose and present books for discussion on subjects of topical interest. Recent books have included The New Silk Roads by Peter Francopans, Farmageddon by Philip Lymbery and Moneyland by Oliver Bullough. Books coming up include A Left for Itself by David Swift and Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez. A full list of books read since the group began in January 2018 is available under our group entry on the Sheffield U3A website.
We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 2.00pm in the Community Room of Ecclesall Library on Ecclesall Road. There is disabled access. Meetings usually last up to 2 hours and there is a small subscription fee of £2.50 per meeting to cover room hire and refreshments.
So, if you think this is something you might be interested in and have time within your other commitments to read a book a month, do give me a call.
Best wishes, Paul.
