Auckland - Bucklands Beach - Group #: AUCK 271
Lively group of women 50's-60's. All teachers but don't let this worry you; we have great discussions and enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles at our evening meetings. Our group is a great place for support and friendship and above all we all love reading.

Women aged 45 plus who love to read, chat, laugh, debate and discuss. An easy going group we meet in each others homes on a loose roster basis.

We are an-all female group of 9 who meet in the Devonport area, aged from early 40s to late 60s, and all very friendly (we wouldn't mind a male)!
Auckland - Glen Eden - Group #: AUCK 307
Mixed group, six women & two men, over 50's; European. (Fun/serious, remains to be seen)
Auckland - Mt Albert - Group #: AUCK 078
We are a well established mixed group (5F 4M currently)who meet at the convenor's home. The person whose book choice has been sent that month provides a small supper, to suit the theme if possible, and leads the discussion. Book selection is diverse, as governed by individual choice (2 titles each) with no priority. Group members whose books weren't sent in any year are invited to provide extra choices to the list for the following year. Discussions are wide ranging - all are supported to speak
