Book Discussion - Tulip Fever (Deborah Moggach)
(Date for this month to be confirmed!) About the book... Seventeenth-century Amsterdam, a city enslaved by madness, a city on the brink of disaster. The city is caught in the grip of tulip mania, basking in the wealth it has generated. Sophia's husband Cornelis, an ageing merchant, is among those grown rich from this exotic new flower. To celebrate, he commissions a talented young artist to paint him with his young bride. But as the portrait grows, so does the passion between Sophia and the painter; and as ambitions, desires and dreams breed an intricate deception, their reckless gamble propels their lives towards a thrilling and tragic conclusion. About us... We usually meet on a Sunday afternoon towards the end of each month in the pub (check venue for each event!) for discussion of one specific book. Books are chosen by the hosts from suggestions given by Book Club members, please come along with your ideas for what we can read in future months! Do not hesitate to contact one of the hosts for more information.

What we're about

A friendly group of book lovers based in and around High Wycombe. We meet in the pub once a month on a Sunday afternoon to talk about a specific title. Also with occasional socials, books swaps and fundraising events for literacy based charities.

This book group has actually been running for several years, started up by Tamsin as one event in a general social group, but we decided that it was time to go it alone, get some new readers interested, and do some creative book related events!
