Memo Book Club

Book Just Image

April 2021

We were thrilled to win copies of Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro and The 24-Hour Cafe by Libby Page through The Reading Agency. Books were circulated to Book Clubbers to review and come along to virtual book discussions with the author Libby Page or Kazuo Ishiguro’s editor Angus Cargill in late April and early May.

The book of Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro is held up by hand in front of a painted blue wooden background in the sun. The book cover is a striking red colour with bold black text and a square central image of the sun just peaking into a blue sky. The book of The 24 Hour Cafe by Libby Page is held by hand at a jaunty angle with a background of a striped tablecloth and a spotty mug of tea. The book is a bold pink colour with an illustration of a cup and saucer with two female characters sitting on it like Borrowers.

March 2021

Our blossoming Virtual Book Club have been reading Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo, which follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years. If you want to join in with our monthly book club, drop us an email – hopefully we can meet up in person soon but in the meantime we’re on Zoom!

The book of Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo is held by hand against a background of a pink blossoming tree in front of a bright, clear blue sky. The book cover is a strong yellow with a silhouette of a black woman with a multi coloured headscarf.

February 2021

The Dig by John Preston was our first focus book in Book Club, sparking interesting conversation around the adaptation of novels into films and around writing about factual events and real people through fiction.

January 2021

Remember our Virtual Book Club? We had planned to launch a real life book club this month but due to the restrictions we can’t. Until we can invite you back into the building, join us for a monthly book club on Zoom.

Our first gathering of the year will be 8pm on Thursday 28th January. Just bring along your favourite book, it could be something you enjoyed in 2020 or the best book you’ve ever read. It’s a chance for a chat and recommendations of what to read next.
