Dear book group,

We have been invited to a recording of BBC 4 book club with Jim Naughtie.

From Dymphna Flynn who is the producer:

I’d welcome a group of you along on Thursday 16th January to talk to JAMES MEEK on the People’s Act of Love. To arrive at 1740, BBC Broadcasting House London W1A 1AA, finishing at 1915

Here’s a review from when it was first published

[bookpage.com]

Very best
Dymphna

These events are always good fun. Naughtie is very disarming and charming as is Dymphna. You get ushered up to the Boardroom and are given a glass or two of wine. The atmosphere is very relaxed. You will need to read the book and send in two questions. If on the night you feel too shy to ask that's fine. Nearby there is a Thai restaurant which is cheep & cheerful.

So if you would like to go then let me know and I will put you forward.

All the best,

Chick

Dear book group,

I am going to attempt a group meeting for Wednesday 22nd at 8.00pm.

This from Sheila:


The book club with my ex-work colleagues has started using Zoom which I found easy to set up and use. You only get 40 mins free but the organiser can sign up for second session a few minutes later which is what we did so we could have a short break. The organiser gets a code which they email to all the participants which they then use to log on to the meeting. It does need someone to coordinate responses because if more than one person speaks at a time no one can hear. We use a hand up signal when we want say something and the coordinator then invites us to speak. Also everyone must turn off mobiles, radio and TV or it interferes. Someone answered her mobile and we could hear the conversation clearly. Participants can mute if they need to speak to someone at home or answer a call. In short it needs a few rules and disciplined use by participants.

I thought it was very good and a lot more user friendly than Microsoft Teams which was used for another meeting.

So I’ll include a link to Zoom and if you wish you can install it:

[zoom.us]

Also I have had a request to open up the email group so everyone can see everyone else’s email address. I have no objection but a couple of concerns. One is the GDPR regulations but as a book group I suspect we can ignore these. The other is people replying “to all” might cheese some people off. I think we should try it and see. If you do get fed up with lots of emails we can sort that at the time.

I do however need your permission to do so and will only do so if it’s nor against the GDPR regulations.

So please can I have some feed back on this, so far I have had only two emails about these issues.

All the best,

--------------------
Chick.
