Last book club was excellent, as always and a good kick off for 2013. The new book list is out and hopefully there will be something for everyone. We've tried to keep it varied and not all the suggestions could go on!
February's Book Club is surprisingly in February, WEDNESDAY, 13th February, 7.30 at Crucible corner. We'll be chatting about 'The Unlikley pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce. Nominated for the Man Booker in 2012, it's a story about a man who sets off the post a letter to his dying friend, funny and poignant if the reviews are to be believed.
Next month we need to meet at the bar first and allow the theatre crowd to disperse before rearranging tables....manager's request!
The Big Book
Two weeks to go until the first big book of the year. We're reading 'Wolf Hall' by Hilary Mantel. A historical novel about the Tudors, winner of a Booker prize. (the sequel won another one). We will be meeting Wednesday, January 23rd. 7.30pm at the Crucible Corner. Bring suggestions for the next big book!
Book Club in Bradford!
People really enjoyed The Pitman painters' play we read for the December book club. The play is touring at the moment and we're arranging a trip out to see it at the Bradford Alhambra Theatre.
We'll be going Sat 20th April. We have decided to go to the matinee performance at 2.30pm and then go out for a curry afterwards. The tickets will be about £14.50-£24.50 depending on seats and availability. If you would like to come please let Emily and Rachel know asap either via email or Facebook.
