Below are some of the choices bookclub members have made for
On Writing by Stephen King
'On Writing is both a textbook for writers and a memoir of Stephen's life and will, thus, appeal even to those who are not aspiring writers.
If you've always wondered what led Steve to become a writer and how he came to be the success he is today, this will answer those questions.'
Looking forward to meeting you all at 14.30h on 19 November 2015.
December 15th: The Postmistress by Sarah Blake (this was chosen from Wendy’s 3 suggestions the others being: Incendiary by Chris Cleeve and On Green Dolphin Street by Sebastian Faulkes).
Thank you for the books for the Craft LLC Marche de Noel on 28 & 29 November. We could do with some more but I do need some support and helpers for this weekend – please let me know asap if you are able to help, or not.
My choice of food related book was Marguerite Patten’s Everyday Cookbook first printed, I think, in 1968. My mother, in a desperate attempt to turn me into a young lady, gave me this book when I was about 18 and completely disinterested in cooking or any other domestic activity.
On the extremely rare occasions when I needed to produce something edible for anyone other than myself I consulted this book and, over the next few years, thanks to Marguerite, I became (I like to think) fairly proficient in good, plain, basic British cooking! Since then my tastes and culinary skills have changed but the book is still on my kitchen shelf, battered, stained, spineless & rarely consulted - unless, of course, I need to refresh my memory on how to prepare Mulligatawny Soup or Pineapple Soufflé Pudding. I shall keep it forever !
I have put the dates in above for the November and December meetings but,
Look forward to seeing you in November and hearing from you re the marché de noel.
