Is one of your New Year's resolutions to read more widely and to join a book club? You can fulfill that wish by joining the Vinegar Hill Memorial Library Thursday evening Book Club!
The group meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month from 7:30pm. The library is open until 9pm on Thursday evenings, so you can browse the shelves before or after the meeting.
The Book Club is a wonderful way to meet informally and discuss novels.
A different novel is chosen and discussed each month, with a list of upcoming titles provided well in advance.
The first book read this year was The Alice Network by Kate Quinn.
The group have given this novel 4 out of 5 stars ☆★★★★
We asked the Book Club to tell us what The Alice Network was all about, and they provided the following outline-
"The Alice Network is about girl power in early 1900. Women are successful spies and the story tells how the atrocities of war affect them throughout their life"
They also provided us with the following reviews of the novel-
"I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was a good commentary on the female spy networks of the World Wars, while still being fictional. It gave you enough teasers of actual events to want to know more. A good read about strong women!"
"I liked the books unexpected outcome. I would recommend it"
A big thank you to our book Club, it does sound like an intriguing read! The novel discussed next month is Ada by Kaz Cooke
We look forward to meeting new members at our next meeting Thursday 8th March 2018.
