South Norwood friends have Michelle Obama booked

The autobiography of former US First Lady Michelle Obama is first up for South Norwood’s book club’s 2019 reading list.

Becoming will be discussed by The Page Turners group when they gather in Yeha Noha café and bar, on Station Road close to Norwood Junction station, from 7.30pm on Thursday, January 3.

Page Turners is a friendly group of friends and neighbours who meet on the first Thursday of each month to discuss what they learned or enjoyed, or didn’t, from a book nominated at the previous meeting.

Becoming, according to Guy Clapperton, the Page Turners organiser, is the first foray into non-fiction for a while, and was chosen after one member of the group managed to get tickets to hear Obama speak about her book at the Festival Hall recently.

“What better thing to do than to read the actual book?” he said.

“Newcomers are welcome – we use the Lavender room in Yeha Noha, just remember to buy a drink on your way through (or food or whatever).

“If you haven’t finished the book, never mind – many of us don’t! All are welcome and if you’ve been meaning to come, or haven’t been for a while, why not make January your big jumping-in point?”
