What we’re about
If you enjoy reading and discussing modern and classic literature, you would be most welcome to join this Nottingham book club (previously known as The High Low Inspired Book Club). We meet once a month on either the first or second Saturday morning to share our thoughts and opinions relating to the chosen book of the month which we read in advance. At the end of each session we announce the book for the following month so you have plenty of time to enjoy it. The host generally compiles a list of questions to help develop the discussion but equally members are welcome to bring their own research about the themes and ideas in the books to the meetings. We don't always agree about what the main themes of the book are or what the authors intent is in writing the book, however we aim to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to join in the conversation and everybody's opinions are respected and valued. In order to give every participant the opportunity to contribute to the discussion, we limit the number of attendees for each session.
The sessions generally last for about an hour.
If you have any further questions about the group please don't hesitate to contact one of us. We look forward to meeting you soon.

- October Book Club: TELL ME HOW THIS ENDS by Jo LeeversNottingham Contemporary, Nottingham
We look forward to welcoming you for the October book club. This month's book is described as a mystery/thriller, and should be perfect for whiling away the darker autumn evenings...
Can Henrietta find out what happened to Annie’s sister—before it’s too late?
Haunted by the past, Henrietta throws herself into a new job transcribing other people’s life stories, vowing to stick to the facts and keep emotions at arm’s length. But when she meets the eccentric and terminally ill Annie, she finds herself inextricably drawn in. And when Annie reveals that her sister drowned in unexplained circumstances in 1974, Henrietta’s methodical mind can’t help following the story’s loose ends…
Unlike Henrietta, Annie is brimming with confidence—but even she has limits when it comes to opening-up. Ever since that terrible night when her sister left a pile of clothes beside the canal and vanished, Annie has been afraid to look too closely into the murky depths of her memories. When her attempts to glide over the past come up against Henrietta’s determination to fill in the gaps, both women find themselves confronting truths they’d thought were buried forever—especially when Henrietta’s digging unearths a surprising emotional connection between them.
Could unlocking Annie’s story help Henrietta rewrite the most devastating passages in her own life? And, in return, can she offer Annie a final twist in the tale, before it’s too late?
