Book Club

We meet the first Tuesday morning of each month in Le Patio Cafe, 24160 Excideuil from 10.30 a.m., to discuss the book of the month. The books are chosen by vote from a list of suggestions from the members who present their choices at the end of each year.

Members use e-readers or real books, and we can exchange books to help access various suggestions.  Current members feel they have been able to read many authors they would never have normally encountered, and feel they benefit greatly from being a member!

We also read a wide choice of brain teasing as well as popular books, and our discussions tend to be wide ranging and inevitably amusing! We do hope some of you may want to join us in discussing these.  Or maybe you would just like to come along and listen to see if you fancy reading the book under discussion.

We are linked with NEDWA (the North East Dordogne Women’s Association) but membership of NEDWA is not a requirement.  The Book Club welcomes women and men.


The November Meeting of the Excideuil Book club always focuses on the selection of books for the following year, based on members suggestions.  Each member’s first choice is included and where the books are short enough they have been put together in one month.

The books are read in the month shown and then discussed on the first Tuesday of the following month at the Patio cafe in Excideuil at 10.30am.

The list for 2020 is very interesting, as well as containing some challenging and entertaining elements, and as ever, will provoke the usual keen discussions! 

If anyone is interested in joining the Club, please email me at 

We understand that not all members can attend every meeting, but it would require a commitment to read most of the books! If you would like more information on the books on the list, please contact me, and I can give you a more detailed summary.

We have established the list which we view with much enthusiasm and feel that we’ll have much food for thought and some excellent discussions. As with all our groups, dip in or out as you choose, and should anyone be interested in joining us, even for the occasional month they will be more then welcome.

Should anyone feel like reading any of these, (or have already read them!) and sending their thoughts in to me, I will be very happy to include these in our discussion for that month, or you could attend the appropriate meeting as a guest.  I also hope some of you might be persuaded to join our Club on the strength of this list!
