Our book club is monthly, very relaxed and sociable. Come on by! We meet the second Tuesday of every month.
If you have not read the book but would still like to visit, please feel free to meet up with us anyhow. I get this question a lot. We would love to have you come on by and meet with us so you can get a good feel for the club. There have been times when I have not finished the book! Don't worry about it.
We hold our meetings upstairs at The Rusty Hammer in Portsmouth. Enjoy a beer, good food and great conversation.
Our February pick is The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. Here is the description from GoodReads:
The Rules of Blackheath
Evelyn Hardcastle will be murdered at 11:00 p.m.
There are eight days, and eight witnesses for you to inhabit.
We will only let you escape once you tell us the name of the killer.
Understood? Then let's begin...
Evelyn Hardcastle will die. Every day until Aiden Bishop can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others...
The most inventive debut of the year twists together a mystery of such unexpected creativity it will leave readers guessing until the very last page.
Thanks to everyone who came out this evening to discuss A Clockwork Orange. What a great discussion!
