Distancing • July 2020

Help select what we'll read and discuss next!


The topic is Distancing.

Maybe a tongue in cheek reference the current world, but this could refer to something about people or a person being apart from each other or another for whatever reason, or perhaps people slowly drifting apart, or whatever take on the word you may come up with.


Detailed nominating and voting guidelines can be found here. Basically, nominations are open for about four days and each person may nominate up to three literary selections which will go automatically to the vote. Voting by post then opens for four days, and a voter may give each nomination either one or two votes but only has a limited number of votes to use which is equal to the number of nominations minus one. Any questions, feel free to ask.

We hope that you will read the selection with us and join in the discussion.
