London Historical Fiction Book Group Message Board › London Historical Fiction Book Group - The Ground is Burning by Samuel Black
Just a quick message for the attention of all those planning to come this Monday evening to discuss "The Ground is Burning" by Samuel Black - or anyone who has read, or plans to read, the book but can't make it.
I've uploaded my usual compilation of articles, interviews and reviews related to the book that I found and that you may find of interest to peruse. Just a reminder: this is not required reading! So you are more than welcome to come along without having looked at this. But it may help engender some discussion on the night.
You can find the file here:
or if that direct link doesn't work, look for it here:
It's not too late to RSVP for the meetup here:
Finally, just a quick apology. There's a chance that work will unfortunately prevent me from attending on the night. I did not know when I scheduled the meetup that next week would be one of the heaviest in the year for me work-wise. I will do my utmost to get out of work in time to join you, but I fear it may have to be a late one, in which case Natalie has kindly agreed to chair the discussion.
The table in the bar is booked in my name (Justin) for 7.30pm so if you don't recognise the people, ask the staff. By the way, apparently the round table area is no longer available as it's not part of the bar anymore but we should have a decent table reserved for us. Another bookstore has approached me to offer a space there for us to meet up in (just off Tottenham Court Road) but I'll investigate further before I suggest it to the group; the only advantage would be that it should be quieter than the bar at Waterstone's.
Anyway, I do hope to be there on Monday, but if not, enjoy and see you next time.
All the best
