Lathbury has its own flourishing and very friendly book group, which has been going for over 10 years and has read north of 140 books. Even if you don’t want to join the physical meetings you can always count on the group for a good recommendation or two.





We read widely – anything and everything – from the latest best sellers to half remembered classics from our school days. We meet at 7.30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month and discuss our chosen book for a couple of hours. New members are warmly welcomed.

Titles on the 2019 Reading list include:

  • Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
  • At Risk by Stella Rimmington
  • The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier
  • The Wild Other by Clover Stroud
  • Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
  • Transcription by Kate Atkinson
  • Sirens by Josephine Knox
  • This Boy by Alan Johnson
  • The Bees by Laline Paull
