The monthly Book Club meet is almost here…

The book selection for this event was also from the Booker prize shortlist: – The Fortune Men by Nadifa Mohamed.

The Fortune Men is a non-fiction novel that semi-fictionalises the true story of Mahmood Hussein Mattan, a Somali former merchant seaman who was executed after being wrongfully convicted of the 6 March 1952 murder of Lily Volpert (renamed Violet Volacki in the book) in Cardiff’s Tiger Bay.

Please join us for an hour of stimulating discussion at 17:30 Tuesday 30 August on Zoom.

Discussion points will be shared with the participating Members to make this event as insightful as possible.
