Event Navigation

 

Join us for our first Reading Group meeting of 2018!

Our next read is Ali Smith’s Autumn, published in 2016 and the first in a planned quartet of books (the second book in the quartet, Winter, was published in November 2017).

Set in 2016, in the wake of the EU Referendum, the book focuses on Elisabeth Demand, a ‘no-fixed-hours casual contract junior lecturer’, and her friendship with her former elderly neighbour Daniel Gluck (aged 101 and living in an assisted care home).

Nominated for the 2016 Man Booker Prize, read some reviews of Autumn here:
