Get to grips with Henry VIII at May’s Page Turners meeting

The next book for Page Turners, the South Norwood monthly book club, is Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

Wolf_Hall_coverThe book, recently the subject of an acclaimed BBC drama adaptation, sees Tudor history re-written around the life of Thomas Cromwell, the son of a Putney blacksmith, who despite such unpromising beginnings becomes the protégé of Cardinal Wolsey and a man of influence in the court of Henry VIII at a time which would change the course of events for England, and the world.

Page Turners is a free, monthly meeting held at Yeha Noha, near Norwood Junction. All the organisers ask is that attendees buy a cup of coffee or tea (maybe a piece of cake, too), since the cafe provides the space for the book club at no charge.

Wolf Hall will be discussed on Wednesday, May 18, starting at 7.30pm.
