Summer Long Read – Seasonal Quartet by Ali Smith
Our summer long read is going to be the whole Seasonal Quartet by Ali Smith. Summer has just come out in paperback so the series in now complete. There are 4 books in this order: Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer. They are kind of stand alone stories but also linked, and they were written and published very quickly commenting on the news at the time – running from the Brexit vote to the start of lockdown.
We will most likely arrange a date somewhere around the end of August to discuss them. This might be a real life meet up and we’re happy to hear any suggestions of an appropriate location linked to these books (the Royal Academy Hockney exhibition is one suggestion). Or it might still be on Zoom. Who knows what will happen in the next 3 months.
For now this is just a placeholder for info and so you can let us know if you’re taking part.
