Every Wednesday morning The Book Club meet up at SeeAbility's Leatherhead Millennium Centre

John Evans, Elaine Evans, Mark Taylor, Anne Docwra, Sue Street and David Jenkins listen to audio books and discuss them, supported by Maria Amato (volunteer) and Hannah Stuart (staff).

The books are selected by the group and they vary from murder mysteries, thrillers, classics, comedies, and contemporary literature. Elaine Evans says: “I can get to know other people and places from listening to stories.”

The group enjoy it so much and have decided to start writing their own short stories! Here's an excerpt from one of David Jenkin's:

Alf felt confused and perplexed. He drifted in and out of sleep, and he thought he heard a muffled cry and footsteps running away. An hour later, Alf awoke. He noticed the silence and saw a pillow over Rupert’s head. The covers were on the floor. There was no movement or sound. He went up to Rupert and shook him, his body was cold.

David Jenkins went on to say:

I just love being at book club, it has given me lots of inspiration. I love writing stories and I get great pleasure out of doing it my ambition is to have my work published.
