Happy New Year!
The first Book Club of 2013 is THIS WEDNESDAY, 9th January,7.30 at Crucible corner. We'll be chatting about 'The Sisters Brothers' by Patrick DeWitt. A western which is excellent and was nominated for the booker prize, definitely not just one for the boys!
The Big Book
The first in the series was a great success and we're doing it again in January. We unanimously decided on 'Wolf Hall' by Hilary Mantel. A historical novel about the Tudors, winner of a Booker prize.
We will be meeting Wednesday, January 23rd. 7.30pm at the Crucible Corner.

People really enjoyed The Pitman painters' play we read for the December book club. Apparently the actual play is touring at the beginning of next year. We think the nearest performance may be in Bradford. A tentative plan is to go one Saturday, possibly watch the matinee and then have a curry. More details to follow!
Jan - Sisters Brothers - Patrick DeWitt
Feb - Unlikely pilgrimage of Harold Fry - Rachel Joyce
March - Brick Lane - Monica Ali
We have set ourselves the task to finalise the next few months this week.....look out!.
