A monthly delve into our favourite fiction, hosted by writer and broadcaster Alex Clark
Welcome to Book Club
Books have proved our constant companions and a source of inspiration and comfort over the difficult and painful year. But although reading is a solitary pursuit, talking about books with those who have also enjoyed them is also a great pleasure. With that in mind, we are launching a new book club with your voices at its heart.
Hosted by critic and festival regular Alex Clark, each month’s meeting gives you the chance to discuss a book in detail – chewing over what it gave you, how it fitted in with your life and what other books it brought to mind. And we want your real opinions – good, bad and indifferent!
Alongside writers that will be familiar to you, we hope this will also be a voyage of discovery, reflecting what is new, unexpected and compelling from the literary scene.
