In 2022, we are working on events for the following texts:

Due to the current circumstances regarding COVID-19, Cardiff BookTalk will continue to run as an online series of events until at least February 2022. We hope this will allow us to maintain social distancing and still provide the book group with a difference: discussing expert perspectives and readers’ views about the big ideas in a range of classic and contemporary fiction.
