Themes for next year

A former member
Post #: 1
Hi all,
Been thinking about themes for next year so I thought I'd share a few ideas! smile

A play - we've been talking about Shakespeare for months!
A novel in translation - I'm thinking Orhan Pamuk, or something as good as Shadow of the Wind!
Classic crime novels
Prize winning novels - we could look at Booker shortlist, best of Bookers, Orange prize for fiction etc
American novel - I'm thinking Cormac Mcarthy, John Updike, etc.
Cross-over children's fiction - so many novels now are for children and adults e.g. Harry Potter, His Dark Materials - thought it might be fun to read some!

See you next week!

Comedy was also suggested at the last book club, by Sarah. And poetry by Neil.

I've seen that is was supposed to be books they tried to ban in November! Think that's a great one. As we're not having it because of our local author book, please can we carry that forward to next year!
