All Booked Up!

Welcome to All Booked Up - a new reading group in Shrewsbury Library.

I'm Cathy, I'll be co-ordinating the group. If you're interested in joining, you can email me on, Tweet me at @cathyab or use the contact form on the website. Or talk to the library staff and they'll put you in touch!

The main focus of our reading is intended to be 'fantastical', covering horror, suspense, thrillers, mysteries, ghost stories, sci fi and fantasy. We have a great list from the library to make our selections from, so we should have lots to talk about! If you are interested in joining a reading group and are a little concerned about the fantastical focus, get in touch anyway and we'll widen the list if we need to - there's plenty of scope for discussion.

We'll be meeting on the first Wednesday of every month at 7.30pm in the Hobbs room at Shrewsbury library. The first meeting will be Wednesday March 2nd, 2011.
