This months book: The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng.

Monday nights are rubbish... But wait, they don't have to be!

Come along to Leaf on Portland Street (we have a 10% discount on food and they're opening later for us so ignore opening times) for a chat about books, life and no doubt the weather (this is Manchester after all!)

This month we will discuss whether “every act of gardening is a form of deception”. Spanning 30 years Tan Twan Engs tantalisingly evocative (ooo er) novel sounds like a beautiful read which treads that fine line between tension and possibility. Let’s get reading.

We're a very relaxed and friendly book club so please come along and don't worry if you haven't read the book, watched the film... or cheated and read the wiki page.

We'll stay as long as we still have things to say (usually around 2 hours) and pick next months book with a vote so come prepared with suggestions.

The £1 fee goes towards paying for the MeetUp subscription and if we make any additional dollar, dollar then I'll be donating it to a local Manchester charity (to be decided at the end of the year).

Hope to see you there and any questions just give me a shout.
