Walk and Talk

hiking boots
Time to get outside! Get on those hiking boots and take some time to revel in the great outdoors! The idea is to organise an easy walk once a month – approximately 10 km, 2 to 3 hours, in the afternoon – in order to discover or re-discover the beautiful hiking paths of the Maine-et-Loire. Come along with good walking shoes, protection against rain, cold or heat according to the season…. a bottle of water and a little “en-cas” to keep you going ! Maximum group is 20 so make sure to sign up!

Want to sign up? Easy as pie!

Sign up by sending your name, email address and phone numbers (perferably cell phone) to this email address. You will be sent full details of the walk in due time.

The May selection is the book “The Fault in our Stars” by John Green.

But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group,
Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank and Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg. Hazel introduces her favorite novel to Gus and tells that she dreamed about having a conversation with the author, Van Houten, who lives in Amsterdam. Gus contacts him and Van Houten invites them to visit him in Amsterdam. They travel to the Netherlands where Hazel will learn that things are not like they seem to be.

When and where: Meetings will be held in the library once a month on Saturday afternoons starting at 3:00. Cost: FREE to all members of the library. To join: Please contact Anne Kaar at bookgroup@ellia.org
