Welcome to the Harbury Village Library Classic Book Group where we read and discuss those books you always wanted to read but never have, or started, but never finished. 

Eleven people participated in our online meeting on on Tuesday April 21st when we discussed "Keep the Aspidistra Flying" and "Homage to Catalonia" by George Orwell. . You can find out what we discussed, what some of us thought about the book, and leave your own thoughts, on our Classic Book Group blog.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 19th May at 7.30 pm we'll be discussing "I Know why the Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou, the 1969 autobiography describing the early years of the American writer and poet.
