Shutford book club
Shutford Book Club is meeting face to face in the village hall once again as of September, having resorted to virtual sessions since March 2020. It’s been a real lifeline over months of various lockdowns and brought companionship and solace in difficult times - especially to those who were shielding - but we all got pretty fed up with sharing thoughts about books online so it’s good to be face to face again!
Kathleen Leeson’s suggestion 'Girl, Woman, Other' by Bernardine Evaristo is the ‘re-launch’ book on September 20th, and October’s book will be ‘Small Pleasures' by Clare Chambers, suggested by Sara Swann.
It’s not the only fresh start for the club, as Kirsten Parrish is stepping down from leading the group after forming it nine years ago. The book that kicked it all off was 'The Book Thief' by Markus Zusak, the story of a girl who finds her own escape in books during the second world war:
"Books everywhere! Each wall was armed with overcrowded yet immaculate shelving. It was barely possible to see paintwork. There were all different styles and sizes of lettering on the spines of the black, the red, the gray, the every-colored books. It was one of the most beautiful things Liesel Meminger had ever seen." - The Book Thief - Markus Zusak.
New bookclub contact information to follow, in the meantime happy reading!
Full details of the club and its activities can be found here.
