September Book Discussion - The Stranger's Child by Alan Hollinghurst

Book Discussion Evening – Share views and gain new insights into this months book.

....and to vote for our next book from a list of suggestions from our members.

Drinks in The Bar from 7.30pm for a 8pm Start in the function room upstairs.




If anyone has a suggestion for our next book please email the details to the message board at... [masked]  Please include a review of the book with your message or better still, tell us in your own words why we should be reading it. Ideally suggestions should be available in paperback (for affordability) not too long or too short [masked] pages seems to work best) and of a decent standard of literature (make your own judgment about that one).

Also please give some thought as to how well the book lends itself to  lively discussion and debate on the night - Such things as a complexity of plot, a variety of themes, philosophical or social issues, well developed characters and perhaps a few unexpected twists and turns.

If you do recommend a book we will ask you to briefly (3 minutes maximum) tell us about the book at the meetup before we put each title to the vote so please come prepared for that. You do not have to chair

    Another engaging and interesting discussion. Thanks to Steve for an excellent book suggestion and leading the meeting so well. Maybe we could club together to buy a higher-voltage bulb to light the room?
