Forrest Gump by Winston Groom
Laugh, cry, stand up and cheer: Forrest Gump is everyman's story, everyman's dream. A wonderfully warm, savagely barbed, and hilariously funny 'tale told by an idiot', from the razor-sharp pen of a contemporary wizard. No one is spared and everyone is included. If you've ever felt lacking, left out, put upon – or just wanted to have a rollicking good time – this book is for you. At 6'6", 240 pounds, Forrest Gump is a difficult man to ignore, so follow Forrest from the football dynasties of Bear Bryant to the Vietnam War, from encounters with Presidents Johnson and Nixon to powwows with Chairman Mao. Go with Forrest to Harvard University, to a Hollywood movie set, on a professional wrestling tour, and into space on the oddest NASA mission ever. Forrest Gump lives! Thank heavens!

What we're about

Meet kindred book lovers in a local Book Club.

We will read a new book every month and get together to talk about it. Come to laugh, share stories and make new friends!

In our group we aim to broaden our reading horizons, enjoy stimulating discussion, meet new people and most importantly have fun. This group is fairly new in the Limehouse area so it is open for development depending on who joins. We have recently joined forces with the St Katharine's Precinct and will meet in the Community Hub adjacent to the Coffee Yurt.

Hope to meet you soon!
