The ABSW board has been discussing regional activities, and has become aware of the existence of a couple of loosely affiliated book groups. That’s mostly because I’m a member of one, based in Bristol. This is our story – you may want to copy it, or write in (firstname.lastname@example.org) and share the story of your own group on the ABSW site.
Legend has it that the Bristol science book group originated after a discussion between our founder, Jon Turney, and another ABSW member who has never actually come to our group. We’ve been running since 2010, after Jon solicited for interest on the ABSW list. Since then membership has waxed and waned as people have become aware of it through informal channels.
