The book chosen at the last meeting to read for the meeting on 27 December is:
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
This is a short (can be read in an afternoon) classic of American literature written in the 19th century. It is a study of the position of women of Victorian society in America.
Those who like to read on kindles may like to note that it is available for free on Amazon:
It's also available as a free download from the Gutenberg Project:
For those who like a little context to their reading, Spark Notes on the Yellow Wallpaper are also available on line for free: http://www.sparknotes...
We deliberately chose a short book to read for the next meeting to take account that many people will be very busy over the Christmas period. More substantial selections to follow.
At the Christmas meeting, we will be choosing a book to read for the meeting at the end of February. Please come along with a couple of suggestions or recommendations. The final arbiter for this meeting will be Letitia Fearon.
The meeting will take place on 27 December, meeting at 7.30 pm at the Light Cafe, 48 High Street, Wimbledon Village.
Please do let me know if you are planning on attending so I can reserve a suitably-sized area. We had a great evening at the last meeting so I'm very much looking forward to seeing those who can make it again, and of course, hopefully many of those who couldn't make the first meeting too.
