he Gallery Cafe Book Club has been running since 2010 and continues to meet on the third Tuesday of every month for like-minded individuals who share a love for literature. This month they will be looking at To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.' - A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel – a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much.
Entry is free and all are welcome
Here are some future third Tuesdays to look forward to: 20th September (Go Set a Watchman), 18th October (Frankenstein by Mary Shelley)
