Happily Ever After links with Stratford Soroptimist Club

We are pleased to announce that Happily Ever After has formed its first association with a local reading group.

Soroptimist International is a World-wide organisation for women, all committed to working for equality, development and peace. Internationally, they are currently raising funds for projects in Sierra Leone, Ethiopia and Uganda. The Stratford Club meets monthly and enjoys talks, fund-raising and social activities, and locally the members support the Shakespeare Hospice and Warwickshire Air Ambulance, as well as maintaining a garden at Stratford Hospital.

Stratford Soroptimists now have a Reading Group which is a fairly recent addition to their activities. These ladies have widely varying tastes in literature, but hopefully over the course of the year they will all find something they enjoy among the titles they will be reading.

Currently, the groups are reading ‘The Eyre Affair’ by Jasper Fforde. This is a wacky, slightly sci-fi book featuring a heroine called Thursday Next who is a literary detective on the trail of the evil villain of the story, who is kidnapping characters from great novels and threatening to change the plots of the novels forever!

The book is the first in a series of Thursday Next titles, which have become a bit of a cult among some readers.

The next book the group will be reading is ‘Snow Falling on the Cedars’ by David Guterson. This is a beautifully written tale set on a remote island off the West Coast of America in the 1950s.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Club and we hope that every month one of two members will be able to come into the studio and review their latest read with our listeners.

If you have read either of the titles mentioned above and would like to tell us what you thought, please send us a message! We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes
Jacqui and the SCR Team
