For February, in honour of the great Fay Weldon, we are going to read The President’s Child. Apparently, this is not available in print and has to be ordered on a print on request basis (takes three weeks), but is available as an eBook. I am hoping the book turns up in time, but Weldon wrote great page turners, so I’m reasonably optimistic I’ll be able to attend.
You do need to have read the book to join in; we’ll be meeting in the #60 Brasserie at Newington Green and we shall be there on 21st February (the third Tuesday of the month) at 8 o’clock.
For any further information please email us.
