This group meets at the Compton Road Library, Harehills Lane, Harehills, Leeds, LS9 7BG (map link here), and is led by Helen Kingstone (helenkingstone@yahoo.co.uk) and April Geers (aprilrose.geers@gmail.com). The group meets from 5-6:30 pm on Wednesday evenings. All are welcome!

To give a sense of the group, here is a reflection by group member Harriet on reading ‘The Road Not Taken’, by Robert Frost’:

This poem was a great one to talk about in our group: after going
through the meaning of all the new vocabulary, we discussed important
decisions that we make in our lives and how they can have far reaching
consequences. The group have very different perspectives on the
meaning of the poem and how it relates to their own varied experiences
of life. Matilda, a 70 year old woman from the Congo spoke of regrets
about decisions she made while in Africa that effect her life now.
Meanwhile, Camille,  a young French woman, spoke of her excitement in
the decisions that are still to come in her life, and how going for
the harder option can be an exciting challenge!
