Join me and our regular panel,

On the first Wednesday of every month we discuss a great novel or memoir with a bunch of avid readers.

David Nicholls gave generously of his time and thoughts one evening - and enthralled us all. We threw many questions his way - about Sweet Sorrow, One Day, Us, and were left spellbound
Louise Doughty author of the fabulous Apple Tree yard joined us for our first ever book club meeting and fielded some tricky questions about her stunning novel.
Amanda Craig, author of The Golden Rule, joined us for a special edition of book club that was filmed for The Chiswick Book Festival. You can see the session by clicking here
Trent Dalton recorded himself answering our many questions - and would have been with us, had the time difference between the UK and Australia worked out! Here we all are, hanging on his every word...

While neither the author, Toshikazu Kawaguchi nor translator, Geoffrey Trousselot were able to join us because of time difference, Mr Trousselot kindly answered our many questions so that we could better chew over the novel and the translation on the night of our book club - or as Mr Kawaguchi called it 'our reading party' :)
Clare Chambers joined us for our discussion of her sumptuous novel, Small Pleasures, which was longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2021. Sadly - and wrongly in the view of many - not shortlisted.
