Come along to the Three Crowns for a drink and a chat. We will be discussing Lullaby by Franco-Moroccan writer Leïla Slimani.
It's a big pub, but we're bringing a globe with us so we should be easy to spot. We will be discussing the novel itself, its cultural context, and racial and gender issues in contemporary France.
The book can be ordered into your local library or bookshop, alternatively physical, Kindle, and audiobook versions can be bought here:
