GUY CLAPPERTON on the next meeting of the South Norwood book club, Page Turners, when the book’s author will be at the event
… and that was another fine meeting with numbers up a bit from last time.
The consensus among us was that the book we chose for June, The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson was a little lukewarm (with a hat-tip to Joel who liked it, and thought it very good value for the 20p he paid for it). A number of people told me online that they liked the book – it would have been good to see more of its fans on the day.
Maybe next time – when we’ll be discussing Paths of Separations by new member Gulshan Ul Amin, who joined us for the evening. Feeling brave enough to discuss a book in front of its author? She’s brave enough to take it!
Page Turners meets on the third Wednesday of the month, so get your copy of the book and get ready to join us on July 20 at Yeha Noha near Norwood Junction station. See you there!
