January Double Header

So I wasn’t actually there, but apparently it was a big noisy meeting to talk about Quiet, and thanks Maddy for taking notes.

So our first meeting of 2017 and it’s a DOUBLE HEADER. I’m not sure how this works, you’ve got 2 months, I guess read either or read both and we’ll figure it out on the night. It’ll be at Effra Social on Jan 12th.

The 2 winners are:

Swing Time by Zadie Smith
Chernobyl Prayer by Svetlana Alexievich

Other suggestions were:
Nutshell by Ian McEwan
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
How to Live by Sarah Bakewell
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
If Nobody Speak of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor

See you then, or for the December Christmas party – see separate event for the details of that.

    I’ve never been before but I said to myself that I would join a book club this year. So just to confirm guys that I can read one of the two following books ‘Swing Time by Zadie Smith
    Chernobyl Prayer by Svetlana Alexievich’ to discuss on the 12th of Jan? See you there x
