21.08 Book Club - Death in Spring.jpg

Venue: Gallery Cafe

6pm to 8pm | Free

In the seven years that the Book Club has been part of St Margaret's House , it has brought together a group of people who share a love of literature and commitment to St Margaret's social and environmental work. Anyone and everyone is welcome and this August the group will be discussing Death in Spring by Merce Rodoreda.


'The novel tells the story of the bizarre and destructive customs of a nameless town through the eyes of a fourteen-year-old boy who must come to terms with the rhyme and reason of ritual violence, and with his wild, child-like, and teenage stepmother, who becomes his playmate. It is through these rituals, and the developing relationships between the boy and the townspeople, that Rodoreda portrays a fully-articulated, though quite disturbing, society.'

This August will also mark the last time our monthly book club will meet inside our cafe. Do not worry though, as from September onwards the meetings will be moving into the equally welcoming Create Place at 29 Old Ford Road. See our calendar for more details about dates and times.
