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