Community, What's On
The Grounded Slieve Gullion book club continues on Saturday 16th February at 10.30am in the coffee shop based at Slieve Gullion Forest Park. The book of the month chosen for discussion by the group is “The Lost Horizon” by James Hilton, written in 1933. The book is best remembered as the origin of Shangri-La, a fictional utopian monastery of lamas (Tibetan Gurus of the Buddhist faith) based in the mountains of Tibet and a film of the same name was also produced. The group is an informal and welcoming one, suitable for those aged 18 and over. Members of the group take it in turns to suggest a book for discussion each month and with each member interested in a wide range of genres and styles the club aims to encourage each other to sample books which may be different from the types they would select individually. All new members and their suggestions will be made very welcome and the cosy settings of Grounded coffee shop are an added bonus. Feel free to turn up on the day with the book or contact for further information.
