Palmers Green & Southgate

Book Group 2

This group meets monthly on the first Monday of the month.

The next meeting will be our Christmas get-together on Monday 6 December at a member's home. This will begin at the earlier time of 12 noon.

The book for reading in November is 'The Little Red Chairs' by Edna O'Brien.

The Little Red Chairs A SUNDAY TIMES TOP 100 NOVEL OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

When a man who calls himself a faith healer arrives in a small, west-coast Irish village, the community is soon under the spell of this charismatic stranger from the Balkans. One woman in particular, Fidelma McBride, becomes enthralled in a fatal attraction that leads to unimaginable consequences.

The book for reading in December is 'The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding' by Agatha Christie.

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding Agatha Christie’s seasonal Poirot and Marple short story collection.

First came a sinister warning to Poirot not to eat any plum pudding… then the discovery of a corpse in a chest… next, an overheard quarrel that led to murder… the strange case of the dead man who altered his eating habits… and the puzzle of the victim who dreamt his own suicide.

What links these five baffling cases? The little grey cells of Monsieur Hercule Poirot!
