This monthly book club is dedicated to the fine art of slowing down, taking stock, and doing what we do best: talking about our favorite books. Like-minded booklovers from around the community gather – via Zoom! – to chat about a selected novel which has been making waves and capturing imaginations around the world.
For our next meeting, we will read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro:
Narrated by Kathy, now 31, this book hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at the seemingly idyllic Hailsham School, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, it is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.
With a focus on English-language fiction published during the last few years, Book Chats is a space for making friends and diving together into the diverse worlds offered up by some of today’s most dynamic voices in literature. Here is a selection of titles we have been reading since March 2018.
