About the Event
Shout out to all the local book lovers out there! Are you looking for a new book club to join that is local to you in Poole?Well look no further we have a new afternoon session starting alongside the evening one!
We have our regular monthly book club in the shop but as the evening one is so busy we are launching an afternoon one in the conference room upstairs each month too with a different book to review! The club will be completely FREE and there will be a barista on site to order hot drinks, alcohol or perhaps even a slice of cake or lunch during your visit! Please note, this is a free event so a food or drink purchase on the day would be appreciated. If you would like to arrive earlier for lunch you can join the group then too.
What is the next book?
Our next book to be read and discussed will be "Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow" by Gabriella Zevin
Sam and Sadie meet in a hospital in 1987. Playing together brings joy, escape, fierce competition - and a special friendship. Then, all too soon, that time is over and they must return to their normal lives.
When the pair spot each other eight years later in a crowded train station the spark is immediate, and together they get to work on what they love - creating virtual worlds to delight, challenge and immerse. Their collaborations make them global superstars but along with success, money and fame come betrayal and tragedy.
"Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow" takes us on a dazzling imaginative quest, examining identity, creativity and our need to connect.
How does a book club work?
Each month there will be a new book, chosen by a member of the group for all to read, so that on the next monthly meet up everyone can share their thoughts and opinions.
The afternoon will allow time to discuss the book followed by half an hour to catch up and get to know your fellow book lovers!!
The group will be for over 18's and ideally consist of 6 - 10 people, allowing space for everyones perspective to be heard, and regular attendance is recommended. So if you think this sounds right up your street, then why not come and join us for our first day time meet up
2pm arrival, Finish approx 3.30pm
