Book Groups and Author Visits

Each week we have a book group on Thursdays. There are two slots: 10 am and 7 pm (GMT) and you’re very welcome to either, wherever you are in the world and however much you’d like to participate. Don’t forget to sign up!

I’ve started adding some links with the books to bookshop where US based participators can get paperback versions and support local bookshops.  Disclosure: I’ve added Amazon affiliate links to kindle editions for the US and England. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

This week we’re reading Helen Oyeyemi’s story cycle ‘What is not yours is not yours’. The Gothic, the uncanny, the fairy-tale and the folkloric mix with fantastical drowned kingdoms and modern cities. Come join us!
