- DURATION 60 mins
Join the Rest Less Events Book Club for a coffee and chat to talk about our favourite reads. We will be discussing the Book of the Month and chatting about books generally. This is a chance to meet other bookworms in the community.
December's Book Club choice is 'It Always Snows on Mistletoe Square' by Ali McNamara
On Mistletoe Square, an eccentric elderly woman and her unconventional housekeeper have an enormous Christmas tree and a box of delicate decorations collected over what must be centuries. With each decoration comes a story and with each story a breath-taking glimpse of a Christmas past.
One Christmas at a time, the house's history is brought vividly to life for Elle. But the more she sees of the family's past, the more she wonders where and how their story might end. And what of her own story? Is it possible that what felt like an ending might have been leading her here, to a new beginning?
All you need for this event is an electronic device, a mug, and a love of reading.

Meet the Host, Mahalia
As Events Lead Rest Less, Mahalia loves chatting to members of the community at events! She loves workling closely with Rest Less members, and hosts, to come up with interesting and exiting new ideas to bring to the events calendar. Outside of work, Mahalia is an artist who makes playful 3D items and is a lover of all nature and animals!
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
