May 2013 Book Club Meeting

Hello Book lovers,

We selected our books for the May 2013 meeting.

"Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell
"To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee

If you have time you can read both books, otherwise you can select the book you are most interested in.

The Around Fitzroy & Collingwood Book Club is very informal; there is no set meeting agenda. Over a coffee, beer or wine, we usually have a chat about what everyone thought of the books of the month and see if anyone has read anything else exciting or heard of any great literary events on in Melbourne.

"Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell
Cloud Atlas is a 2004 novel, the third book by British author David Mitchell. It consists of six nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post-apocalyptic future. It won the British Book Awards Literary Fiction Award and the Richard & Judy Book of the Year award, and was short-listed for the 2004 Booker Prize, Nebula Award, Arthur C. Clarke Award, and other awards.

"To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are loosely based on the author's observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old.

    I enjoyed the breadth of topics as well as the discussion around the nominated books. To the lady with the leather boots, the lawyer who left early and the man with the heavy black glasses. I may not have caught your names but it was good to have met you.

    Hi - these both look like great books. I've read 'To Kill a Mockingbird' but it's worth a revisit just to talk about it. Thanks, Pam
