Join the CCG’s virtual book club

Do you enjoy reading or burying your head in a good book?

If so, then why not join the next book club meeting on Thursday 20 August, 12noon to 12.30pm via Microsoft Teams.

This is a great opportunity to keep in touch and stay connected with colleagues. You can share stories, a few laughs and read books outside of your comfort zone.

If you’re interested in joining the book club, contact Judy Hiscott in the Transformation team. Judy will send you a Microsoft Teams invite to join the group.

If you’re new to the organisation, this could be a great way to get to know your colleagues and put faces to names, albeit virtually!

Avid reader, Judy, shares why she enjoys being part of the book club:

“When we are on the book club – although it’s just for a short time – we manage to say how we felt about the book, whether it was easy to read or hard to get into and if it made us laugh or cry.

“Some of us have gone on to do some of the books via audio, which we play in the background while doing other things or listening to while relaxing. We also suggest other books to read in the future.

“Most importantly of all is we have a laugh and this gives us a boost to carry on, especially in these strange times.”

The next book up for review is Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell. Followed by these suggestions for the rest of the year:

  • Dear Life by Rachel Clarke
  • Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer
  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer
  • The Light Keeper by Cole Moreton
  • Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave
  • Leaving Time by Jodi Picolti
