What we're about

Welcome to this Nottingham book club, which is Inspired by The High Low podcast by Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes. We will read books from the podcast's Goodreads list and recommendations and meet online on the 1st Saturday of each month to discuss a book in a warm and relaxed atmosphere for some lovely conversations about the books we've read.

In case you’re not familiar with The High Low, you can find out more about the podcast at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-high-low/id1211338187?mt=2 or https://play.acast.com/s/thehighlowshow (https://play.acast.com/s/thehighlowshow.).

There is a cost to running a Meetup group like this but instead of donating or contributing towards the monthly subscription cost I would be incredibly grateful for anyone purchasing through Amazon to buy their book (or anything else if you wish!) through https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1184076-0 as I work for a small registered arts charity called Total Insight Theatre (https://totalinsighttheatre.com) that works with children and young people experiencing disadvantage across the UK, including Nottinghamshire. Buying via Amazon Smile means that Amazon donates 0.5% of the net purchase price to the charity at no extra cost to you!

If you don't buy on Amazon but, for example, through Waterstones or many others, you could also support the charity by purchasing through Easy Fundraising, the link for which is https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/totalinsighttre/?utm_campaign=raise-more&utm_content=gs-f1

Please absolutely get in touch if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting you soon.

For this Meetup, we'll be reading Dolly Alderton's Ghosts. ********** THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'A poignant, funny tale of early-thirties love and loss' Sunday Times __________________________________________________ Nina Dean has arrived at her early thirties as a successful food writer with loving friends and family, plus a new home and neighbourhood. When she meets Max, a beguiling romantic hero who tells her on date one that he's going to marry her, it feels like all is going to plan. A new relationship couldn't have come at a better time - her thirties have not been the liberating, uncomplicated experience she was sold. Everywhere she turns, she is reminded of time passing and opportunities dwindling. Friendships are fading, ex-boyfriends are moving on and, worse, everyone's moving to the suburbs. There's no solace to be found in her family, with a mum who's caught in a baffling mid-life makeover and a beloved dad who is vanishing in slow-motion into dementia. Dolly Alderton's debut novel is funny and tender, filled with whip-smart observations about relationships, family, memory, and how we live now. ********** Regardless of whether you've come before, you're very welcome to join us online via the Zoom link. Instead of contributions towards the running costs of the group, I would love if anyone who buys through Amazon could buy it through the Amazon Smile link of the registered charity I work for - Total Insight Theatre - as Amazon will then donate to the charity at no extra cost to you and the shopping experience stays exactly the same! The link for Total Insight Theatre's Amazon Smile is www.smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/[masked]. If you don't buy on Amazon but, for example, through Waterstones or many others, you could also support the charity by purchasing through Easy Fundraising, the link for which is https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/totalinsighttre/?utm_campaign=raise-more. See you (virtually) in December and if anyone has any questions about how to join online, please just message.
