Book Circle 4

Book Circle 4

This book circle has been meeting since Autumn 2016 and currently has 8 members, which we find is a good number for a discussion of the books. We meet at the address of the group convener (Ursula) in South Ealing Rd. W5 at 11.00 am on the first Tuesday of the month.

Originally, each member selected 2 books, and we finished reading the last of these in December 2017. Our selection of books to read over 2018 was for the book to have been written in a foreign language and translated into English. A list of the books we have read is shown below.

There will be no meeting in January, so the date of the next meeting is Tuesday 5th February 2019 when we will be discussing the next book in our latest selection, which are all written by Canadian authors. The list of book to be read are:
February 2019 The Tin Flute by Gabrielle Roy
March 2019 The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood
April 2019 The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt
May 2019 The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
June 2019 Do not say we have nothing by Madeleine Thien
July 2019 Player One by Douglas Coupland
