The Words & Pictures Book Club
Monday 14th October 2019, 2-4pm
Gleneagles Tea Rooms
Join us for the Words & Pictures book club where we will be reading and discussing novels in which visual art and artists are relevant to the narrative.
At our October meeting we’ll discuss AS Byatt’s “The Children’s Book”. Set in the Edwardian era, we follow the lives of numerous characters that surround the famous author Olive Wellwood and explore the cultural make-up of Europe before the impending horrors of the Great War.
We will study the book across two meetings: in October we will reach Chapter 27 or thereabouts; then take the second half of the novel into our November book club.
Words & Pictures meets monthly 2-4pm in the glorious surrounds of the Gleneagles Tea Rooms – where there is tea and cake a-plenty!
