Our best reads of 2023

Every December Kennington Library’s monthly author/coffee talk slot is devoted to discussing the books that those present have enjoyed that year. We had a lively meeting and some great books were suggested.

As in previous years the books discussed, by Kennington Library readers and friends, were very varied covering fiction and non fiction from different eras, countries and perspectives.
