The Xàbia Book Circle was founded in the late 1980s by an intrepid group of book lovers from different countries and backgrounds, who settled in the Marina Alta area of Spain's Costa Blanca and who wanted to share their love of reading with fellow bibliophiles.

We are very pleased that the Book Circle can now resume its live gatherings, held at Xabia's Centro Social (here's a map).

Huw Griffith and Jean Hilder will discuss Chaucer's The Wife of Bath and the recent novel by Karen Brooks, The Good Wife of Bath, showing how a story can be retold very differently from its original. Contributions welcome.
