This lively and well-established book club has been meeting at a restaurant in Wimbledon Village for several years but at the moment we're an online group. We will meet on Zoom on the last Thursday of every month at 7:30 PM. I will post the Zoom link a few days before the meetup. We'll discuss the book - and probably a lot of other things as well - and then choose our next book. Books are chosen two months in advance to give everyone time to buy or borrow the book and read it. We read a mixture of fiction and nonfiction, classic novels and new work.
Anyone who likes interesting books and good conversation is welcome.
Our book for September is Where the Crawdads Sing, a novel about a girl growing up on the coast of North Carolina. Kya is forced to fend for herself from a young age and develops a great love for nature, but her solitary life is upended when a young man dies in mysterious circumstances.
Our book for October is The Good People. In the rural Ireland of the early nineteenth century Nora, Mary and Nance band together to help Nora's grandson Micheal, who cannot speak or walk and who is suspected of being a changeling child.
