Book Club on Wednesday: ‘Brick Lane’ by Monica Ali

Hello All


Book Club is this Wednesday, 13th March, 7.30 at Crucible Corner. This month we're reading 'Brick Lane' by Monica Ali.

The Big Book

The next big book will be on Wednesday, April 24th. 7.30pm at the Crucible Corner. We'll be reading Black Diamonds by Catherine Bailey. A story about the fall of an English dynasty in local Wentworth. Initially recommended by our very own Steve but subsequently recommended by others, should be good....and big!

July - Catch 22 by Joseph Heller (mainly chosen so that we never have have another discussion about whether we should read it!)

Book Club in Bradford!

In April we're off to see The Pitman Painters' play at Bradford Alhambra Theatre.
We'll be going Sat 20th April at 2.30pm and then we'll be going out for a curry afterwards. The tickets for the play are £19.50 each and if you're on Rachel's list can you either bring money to March book club or arrange for an internet transfer.

If you're not on the list but would like to come then tickets are available from the box office. There is talk of getting the train together but nothing confirmed as yet.

New Book list

There has been a slight change to the book club list. We have been asked to read a local book by the publisher. They would also like us to review it and so this has been slotted in April, bumping some other books back a month!

We should also apologise for apparently choosing some books which wouldn't look out of place on the big book list!

  • March - Brick Lane by Monica Ali
  • April - A for Angelica (local book) by Iain Broome
  • May - The line of beauty by Alan Hollinghurst
  • June - The spy who came in from the cold by John le Caree
  • July - The book Thief by Markus Zusch
  • Aug - The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
  • Sep - Poetry of some description - TBC
  • Oct - Dracula - Bram Stoker
  • Aug - The unbearable lightness of being - Milan Kindera
