It was a nice change to meet at Veg Bar, though a little more difficult to have a discussion as it was a bit noisier. Welcome to all the new faces, hope to see you again. We’ll be back in the Churchill Room at Effra Social for the next meeting.
We had a wide-ranging talk about Orlando, covering gender, class, time, literature and some other things too.
After a very close vote our book for next time is Edith’s Diary by Patricia Highsmith, and we’re meeting on 12th May from about 7.30.
Other books pitched were:
Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie
Wake – Anna Hope
Spill Simmer Falter Wither – Sara Baume
H is for Hawk – Helen McDonald
Venua will be back at Effra Social – we’ve reserved the Churchill Room.
