Books Reading

Join us for our book club, which runs on the second Tuesday of every month at St Christopher’s CARE! The sessions are free to join, and will begin at 6pm and finish at 7.30pm, with drinks and nibbles to share whilst we talk through the book choice for the month, delving into your thoughts, feelings and questions.

These will be regular social book club evenings where we discuss, debate and explore a monthly book selected by our group, from fiction, to poetry, memoir and more! We will be uncovering new treasures and reacquainting ourselves with old favourites, delving into books that explore death, dying and loss in ways that may be by turns familiar, unexpected and thought-provoking.

MARCH BOOK: Force of Hate by Graham Bartlett

When a night-time firebomb attack at a Brighton travellers’ site kills women and children, Chief Superintendent Jo Howe has strong reason to believe the new, dubiously elected, neo-nazi council leader is behind the murders. Against the direct orders of her chief constable, Jo digs deep into the killings secretly briefing the senior investigating officer of her suspicions.
As she delves further, Jo uncovers an underworld of human trafficking, slavery and euthanasia all leading to a devastating plot which threatens thousands of lives and from which the murderous politician looks sure to walk scott-free. Having narrowly survived a plot to kill her, where another was not so lucky, she realizes that only by facing near-certain death once more can she thwart this terrorist outrage.

What will the book club meetings involve?

Wine, tea, chatting, a chance to meet new people and to explore a book!

We look forward to seeing you there!
