Blindness, by José Saramago

Needs a location

Hi!

We meet on the first Sunday of each month to chat about books. So come and join us! Each month we choose a book, and then we discuss it the following month.

Feel free to come along for some friendly conversation over a coffee, tea, beer or wine - and get to know new friends at the same time.

It's good to have read the book beforehand, but even if you haven't come and join the discussion anyway - and vote on the next book. :)

During June we're reading "Blindness" by José Saramago - and we'll be meeting to chat about it on Sunday 3rd July 2022.

Here's an overview of the book from Goodreads...

"From Nobel Prize–winning author José Saramago, a magnificent, mesmerizing parable of loss

A city is hit by an epidemic of "white blindness" that spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there the criminal element holds everyone captive, stealing food rations, and assaulting women. There is one eyewitness to this nightmare who guides her charges—among them a boy with no mother, a girl with dark glasses, a dog of tears—through the barren streets, and their procession becomes as uncanny as the surroundings are harrowing.

As Blindness reclaims the age-old story of a plague, it evokes the vivid and trembling horrors of the twentieth century, leaving readers with a powerful vision of the human spirit that's bound both by weakness and exhilarating strength."

See you there!
