Rusland Valley Reading Group

The Rusland Valley Reading Group (12 people) meets monthly and reads a wide range of books from short stories to climbing books, classical novels to biography. We want to encourage others to do the same, but feel that 12 is the maximum number of people that can hold one discussion – so if you are interested, there’s no reason why Rusland shouldn’t have more groups!

Reading Group meetings will be via ZOOM for the time being or meeting in gardens, depending on the current guidance…
