Love books, but never seem to have the time to read? Join our Book Group at the Princess Victoria.
We meet on the last Tuesday of the month to discuss a set literary text. Each member gets a chance to choose a book, whether it’s a much loved classic or a newly discovered author you want to share.
For April, we’re reading Blood and Sand by Frank Gardner, a BBC correspondent who reported on the Middle East – a region that had enthralled him since childhood. But following a savage attack in Riyadh, which left his colleague dead, his life turned upside down. Fighting for his life he is flown back to the UK where he slowly comes to terms with the realisation that he is now severely disabled.
We’ll be discussing his vivid depictions of the countries in the Middle East, from the back streets of Cairo to the luxury of Bahrain, over a glass of wine and some snacks on Tuesday 28th April. Let us know if you’d like to join us – 0208 749 5886
