What we're about

This is a group for women in Hertfordshire with a love of books.  We meet once a month to talk books over a drink or two and make a few friends at the same time!
Each month there will be a book category so there will always be a great variety of book choices and the books are chosen by members so tell us your favourites and we will get them added. 
And membership is either £8 each calendar year or £2 pay as you go with the first meet up free so you can check it out and see whether you’d like to be a book group member.
Hopefully see you at a future book group soon! :-)
Donna and Sarah

May - The Sentence by Louise Erdrich

Waterside Inn

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2022

PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE NIGHT WATCHMAN

-----------------------------------------------------

In this stunning and timely novel, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich creates a wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage and of a woman's relentless errors.

Louise Erdrich's latest novel, The Sentence, asks what we owe to the living, the dead, to the reader and to the book. A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the store's most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls' Day, but she simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading 'with murderous attention,' must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation and furious reckoning.

The Sentence begins on All Souls' Day 2019 and ends on All Souls' Day 2020. Its mystery and proliferating ghost stories during this one year propel a narrative as rich, emotional and profound as anything Louise Erdrich has written.
