Books Reading

Join us for our book club, which runs on the second Tuesday of every month at St Christopher’s Hospice Anniversary Centre! The sessions are free to join, and will begin at 6pm and finish at 7.30pm. 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.

Book of the month – July: 1984 by George Orwell

A masterpiece of rebellion and imprisonment, where war is peace, freedom is slavery and Big Brother is watching. Thought Police, Big Brother, Orwellian – these words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984.

The story of one man’s nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic haunting tale, more relevant than ever before.

What will the book club meetings involve?

Chatting, a chance to meet new people and to explore a book!

We look forward to seeing you there!

The sessions will place onsite in St Christopher’s CARE, St Christopher’s Hospice 51-59 Lawrie Park Road, Sydenham London, SE26 6DZ.
