Book Club News
We believe ours is the longest-running book club in the country!
Following a challenge, issued in The Times Literary Supplement on 23rd March 2018, Nick Thody, son of the distinguished French scholar Philip Thody, wrote in the edition printed on the 30th March 2018:
"The University of Leeds Ladies' Club book group was founded in 1966. My mother Joy and another founding member both remain active members of the group after an unbroken fifty-two-year stint."
So far our record has not been surpassed and we are very pleased to report that we now have a second group!
Addresses and phone numbers of contacts can be found on the written programme made available to members each term.
