Christmas discussion and party

  • Dec 4, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Discussing Italo Calvino's If On A Winter's Night A Traveller, with Christmas buffet (£10 entry, £5 deposit required to RSVP)

You can pay your £5 deposit via PayPal securely on this website using your debit and credit card, and it doesn't cost you anything in fees. Note that you do not need to have a PayPal account. Underneath where it asks you to sign in to your PayPal account, it says "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest".

Unfortunately, as I have to pay this deposit to the venue in advance, it is not refundable - but if you find you are unable to come, send me a message directly and I will see what I can do.

If you have no credit or debit card, again, please contact me directly and I'll see if we can make a different arrangement.

You can buy Calvino's book here:
