The August meeting in Pam’s garden was very enjoyable and all the fizz, canapes, poetry and book talk when down really well!
September 21st: The Tobacconist by Robert Seethaler (recommended by Fiona)
we had a good meeting and discussed the book.
October 19th: The Sympathiser by Viet Thanh Nguyen
The Sympathizer can be read as a spy novel, a war novel, an immigrant novel, a novel of ideas, a political novel, a campus novel, a novel about the movies, and a novel, yes, about other novels.
November 16th: Theme month – A Modern Classic
There was some talk as to how to define a Modern Classic but we didn’t come up with anything entirely conclusive. A Classic is a work of literature of acknowledged quality and enduring significance or popularity.
In extended use: something which is memorable and an outstanding example of its kind. Modern? Post 1950.
December 21st: A Christmas reading of your choice
Listopia > Christmas Book Lists
see you in October 2017
Remember, Book Club is always on the 3rd Thursday of the month. All meetings, unless notified, are at Pam’s at 2.30.
