The idea is to be a bit more relaxed that the usual book club format. If you’ve read the book – brilliant; if you’ve read a little bit or even none all then that’s fine too (in fact that’s so likely we were thinking of giving it the more accurate title of ‘part of a book club’ or even less optimistically ‘the first chapter club’). The point is that it will be the least judgmental Book Club ever; in fact if you just turn up because you fancy a coffee and a chat, that’s fine with us. Children are welcome to come along, of course (we’re definitely bringing ours). We want people to be discussing literature, administering snacks, breastfeeding and whatever else it takes, all at the same time. We don’t believe becoming a mother means your mind shrivels up, although we have to admit our cognitive functions do like to take the scenic route sometimes, we still get there in the end.
The meeting will be in the relaxed environment of the cafe (if it works better we might end up moving to the events room for later meetings) and our book this month is Hot Milk. Don't worry if you haven't been before or can't manage the book this month, we would love to have you and your little one of course!
