Carrie by Stephen King [Pub meeting]


N.B. this meeting will be held in person in The Prince of Wales pub near Covent Garden. There is also an online session held on Thursday if you are not in London or are not able to attend in person for any other reason.

(Almost) in time for Halloween, we will be discussing Stephen King's first published novel, Carrie. It is one of the most frequently banned books in US schools, so we know it must be good!

Meeting starts at 7pm with drink breaks at 8 and 9. The discussion will end around 10pm but leave whenever you need to.

Book blurb follows:
The story of misfit high-school girl, Carrie White, who gradually discovers that she has telekinetic powers. Repressed by a domineering, ultra-religious mother and tormented by her peers at school, her efforts to fit in lead to a dramatic confrontation during the senior prom.
