News from the reading group

Reading Group

In October we read “Transcription” an offering from bestselling author Kate Atkinson which is a work of complete duality. For a novel that is concerned with spies and espionage, with hidden identities and masked lives, this is perhaps not entirely surprising.

We also attend talks put on by Hucknall Library with guest authors, which can be very enlightening. The Library also has a “Crime Café” on the second Tuesday of each month, with guest speakers as well as discussions.

In August we read “The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir” by Jennifer Ryan. While their men are off fighting the Nazis, the women in the English village of Chilbury struggle to carry on. Though the action spans only a few months in 1940, a lot happens: there are bombings, a nefarious baby-swapping scheme, passionate love affairs, acts of espionage and of great valour. This was not one of our usual choices but was very enjoyable.

In July we read “Together” by Julie Cohen which follows the fifty-year relationship between Emily and Robbie Brandon, in reverse, cleverly eking out their love story. And their secrets.

In June we read “This Must Be The Place” by Maggie O’Farrell, which was rather difficult to follow as each chapter skipped haphazardly backwards and forwards from one decade and character to another.
