The Elthamread 2018

The idea of the Elthamread is for everyone living in SE9 to read the same book each October then come together at various events to discuss our views. The aim is to encourage people to read books and talk about them.

Help us choose the 2018 Elthamread book.

Have you got a good idea for the next Elthamread book? We are now collecting suggestions for the book everyone in Eltham will be reading in October 2018. There are no hard and fast rules about which book we choose. But based on the last two years’ experience, we have come up with a list of key ingredients which make for a popular and thought-provoking read. So ideally the chosen book should be

• by a living author who is likely to be available for events
• in paperback
• easy to read for a wide range of readers
• probably but not definitely with a London/south London connection
• probably a novel rather than non-fiction
• offering some interesting topics and threads for discussion

Send you ideas to the Elthamread steering group by clicking here. Alternatively, drop in a suggestion at Eltham Library in the Eltham Centre.

Quiz Night 2017

A total of eight teams took part comprising roughly 40 people. It was a fabulous evening which everyone clearly enjoyed. The winning team were the Boozy Bookers. Well done to them. We raised a total £100 from entry fees and the raffle which will be donated to the National Literacy Trust. A big thankyou to Phil Cole for his sterling work as quizmaster and to Joanna and Bill Sterling who kept the scores.
