Page Turners, South Norwood’s monthly book club, next meets on Thursday February 7, when the book being discussed is The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton.
Meeting (usually) on the first Thursday of every month from 7.30pm at Yeha Noha on Station Road at Norwood Junction, SE25, Page Turners is a small but friendly group of neighbours who enjoy good (and not so good) books, reading them and chatting about them, too.
The latest book discussed by Page Turners was Michelle Obama’s autobiography.
“Obama’s sense of place and the ability to draw characters were appreciated by just about everybody (although one or two of us weren’t certain about the detail in which she remembered events from her early childhood),” according to the group’s latest report on their website.
“Her refusal to be defined by her husband, no matter how high-profile, was found to be refreshing by just about everybody.”
The next book to get the Page Turners treatment is, they say, “A cross between Groundhog Day, Gosford Park and Agatha Christie.” All you have too do is get a copy of the book, read it and come along to chat about it on February 7 – over one of Yeha Noha’s excellent coffees, too (the café doesn’t charge for use of the room, but they do hope you’ll buy a cup and maybe some food).
First-timers always welcome. Anyone intending to attend, please let Guy Clapperton know by dropping him a line here – everyone’s welcome but just occasionally if people aren’t available we move the date, so it’s worth checking it’s still on.
