April Book Club, the next Big Book, and a trip to Bradford

Hello All

April is a bumper book club month, with usual book club but also big book club and the book club social to Bradford!

The usual book club is on 10th April, 7.30 Crucible corner. This month we're reading a book by local author Iain Broome, A is for Angelica. It's fairly short so hopefully should leave you some time to finish the big book. I'm not sure how widely available it is but it is definitely available from Amazon.


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 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 this month.

We're 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 arrange for an internet transfer or some other way to get the money to her, you can contact her by replying to this email.

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.
