May Book Club and the Big Book

Hello All

Here is some information about May book club but don't forget April still has a lot going for it! There's pub club, big book club and the book club social to Bradford!

Next book club is, Wednesday 8th May, 7.30 Crucible corner. We'll be reading 'The line of beauty' by Alan Hollinghurst, a Booker prize winner about love, class, sex and money in the Thatcherite 1980s, a complete coincidence but rather timely. Apologies that it's a rather big book at the same time as 'big book'......be antisocial for a while!

The Big Book

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 to have another discussion about whether we should read it!)

Book Club in Bradford! 

We're off to see The Pitman Painters' play at Bradford Alhambra Theatre on Sat 20th April at 2.30pm and then we'll be going out for a curry afterwards. Hopefully most people have settled their debts but if not just bring cash on the day. If you're not on the list but would like to come then there may be tickets still available from the box office. 

We'll be going on the train and will be meeting at Sheffield station at 11.30 on the saturday, should be home around 8 or 9pm.
