28 Wednesday May 30 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN TIMES Email by 5pm each Wednesday Adult Book Clubs Last Friday of the month, 10.30-noon Book discussion groups are a fun and popular way to expand your reading subjects, meet people in your area and share your thoughts and ideas about reading. The sessions are organised to be a discussion over a cup of tea and a bikkie, rather than strict literary criticism. The groups read across a variety of genres and this helps extend the reading experience to include things not necessarily chosen before. Lincoln Library, 22 Gerald St, Lincoln Oil and Water Every day except Monday, 10am-4pm A love of the natural environment and influence of spontaneity threads our three artists together in this May exhibition. While this title suggests two paint media, it has yet another meaning for this show, since it includes two very different kinds of art — painting and pottery. Featuring works by Allan Hooper, Debbie Lambert and Bernadette Parsons, it’s one not to miss.
