The Cove & Kilcreggan Literary Society has speakers invited to give talks on a wide range of social, scientific and cultural topics. Our season runs from October through to March. The talks start at 8.00pm every other Monday evening. There is a Christmas Party and our season ends with an AGM plus Quiz in March. Each talk is followed by a prize draw plus tea and biscuits and a great chance to catch up with other members.
