Orpington U3A members please logon to see group leader contact details.
This is a BOB group run by Beckenham U3A, but open to members of Bromley, Orpington and Beckenham. We explore a couple of poems in detail, which sometimes leads us into broader discussion. People have an opportunity to read the poem and collect their thoughts on it quietly before we talk about our different responses to it together. We examine a wide range of poets, including Jackie Kay, Robert Graves, Sylvia Plath, Tony Harrison, Jonathan Swift, Emily Dickinson, Carole Satyamurti, John Agard and Vernon Scannell. Group members put forward suggestions for poets and we also sometimes swap recommendations for novels we have enjoyed.
Meets: 3rd Thursday, 3 - 5 p.m. at a member's home.
8 members in group. No vacancies at present.
