Mums and dads – and nans and grandads – are welcome to join the Malvern Book Group. This is a very informal, social gathering. Please talk to Mr.Kynaston if you’re interested or would like a little bit more information.
The Book Group’s next meeting will take place on Thursday 7th December at 7.30pm in The Roby Pub on Greystone Road.
We have chosen Philip Pullman’s ‘La Belle Sauvage – The Book of Dust Volume One’ as our book for November.
Seventeen years after Philip Pullman’s third volume of His Dark Materials trilogy sealed the door on Dust, daemons, witches and armoured bears, a tantalising new chapter now lies open with La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One. Winding the clock back a decade before the events of the original series, La Belle Sauvage promises the return of Lyra – here still an infant – and the emergence of young Malcolm Polstead, the future academic who suddenly finds himself drawn into the cloak-and-dagger intrigue….
Marcus Sedgwick’s ‘Saint Death’ was our book for October.
The Book Group met on Thursday 2nd November at 7.30pm in The Roby Pub on Greystone Road.
‘Saint Death’ is a potent, powerful and timely thriller about migrants, drug lords and gang warfare set on the US/Mexican border by prize-winning novelist, Marcus Sedgwick.
Anapra is one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the Mexican city of Juarez – twenty metres outside town lies a fence – and beyond it – America – the dangerous goal of many a migrant.
