Whilst we always intended to re-launch the Club’s Book Club in 2020, it seems there is now no better time.
Why not take some time to disconnect with all that is going on in the world now and immerse yourself in a book? Then re-connect with fellow Members to discuss!
We are starting with a classic that you may already have on your shelves, and we think quite fitting by all accounts; 'Love in the Time of Cholera' by Colombian Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel García Márquez.
From the New York Times review:
"'Love in the Time of Cholera', Gabriel Garcia Marquez's radiant novel, is at once an old-fashioned love story, elegantly fashioned out of the clockwork pieces of romantic fiction, and an anatomy of love in all its forms: the gushy, irrational love of adolescents and the mature love of people who have suffered loss and grief; the high-flown love, immortalized by poets, and the love without love found in bordellos and motels; marital love and adulterous love, spiritual love, physical love, even love that resembles cholera in its symptoms and its pain…”
This month's book club meeting via Zoom takes place on Wednesday 27th May from 16:00 to 17:30.
