Dear book clubbers,

Michel Faber has confirmed that he will come to our January meeting on the 20th to discuss his book and perhaps do a reading from it.

So lets try and make it a bumper meeting, he is coming down just for us but might also do a talk in Rye books.

All going well with no delays he'll be at the meeting at 8.00pm.

Best wishes,

Chick.

Dear Book group,

The Book of Strange New Things has just won the Saltire Fiction Book of the Year award.

Then five minutes later it won the Book of the Year overall.

[www.saltiresociety.org.uk]

It's confirmed Michel Faber will be doing a talk at Rye Books on Thursday 21st.

Can you please confirm if you are coming to the December meal, so far I have Sheila, Sarah Lyons, Sarah, Emma and Veema, Anne & Tess. It helps immensely if I can keep an email trail.

See you soon.

Chick.

Dear book group,

We have been invited to go on the radio 4 book group on 9th March.

The book is Javier Marias - The Infatuations. A link:

[www.theguardian.com]

A link to BBC:

[www.bbc.co.uk]

You would need to read the book and prepare two questions to ask but if you are overcome with shyness thatís ok.

So far we have Sarah & Rob Lansdowne, Gail Bradford, Me, Laura Silver, Tash, Sheila Carson.

Meredith?, Jane Denton, possibly Duncan & Nick. Please confirm asap.
It's good fun and a nice experience, worth doing.

Thanks and best wishes,

Chick.

Greetings book clubbers.
Thanks to everyone who came to a small but interesting meeting last night.
Our next book is The Magic Furnace by Marcus Chown. Itís science history and for those of you who donít wish to read it can I suggest you carry on reading Freedom as itís a large book.
Our next meeting is 16th March and we will be having a discussion of consciousness which will be hosted by two professional philosophers.
Cheers,
Chick.

Hello everyone!

This is possibly a tenuous link, but we are Zoe & Leon from WordPlay, and we run Radio-Drama-Making-Workshops in East Dulwich and surrounding areas. Our next adult workshop (12th March) is all influenced by board games! I thought this might be just up your street! In groups, we challenge you to script a radio play (inspired by your favourite board game), then you pop into our pop-up radio studio and broadcast your radio play LIVE on air! This will also get recorded for you to listen back on our website. We provide various DIY sound effects - including rice, but also encourage people to make their own.

Our Board Game Edition is being held at The Field - a community run space in New Cross this coming Saturday 12th March 7pm-9pm:
The Field
385 Queens Road
New Cross
SE14 5HD

I have attached a poster for the event for more details.

If you fancy it, tickets need to be bought in advance - just so that we can keep an eye on numbers.
Entry costs £5 and you can get your ticket from our website www.wordplayeducation.co.uk/events
or feel free to email us on workshops@wordplayeducation.co.uk to reserve your spot and pay on the door.

Perhaps this might be nice for some of you to come together as a group? (We split groups into 4 people).

BYOB and snacks if you get peckish!

We hope to see (and hear) you there!

All the best,

Zoe & Leon

Dear Book group,

Last reminder that we are meeting tomorrow in the Blake room at 8.00pm. Some will discuss the fiction book and there will also be a discussion on consciousness based on the The Magic Furnace.

We are lucky enough to have Pete Worley to chair the discussion:

[www.philosophy-foundation.org]

I have never done anything like this before so it's uncharted waters for me but I think it will be interesting.

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Chick

Dear book clubbers,

Thanks to every one who came to last nightís meeting. A very interesting discussion on consciousness and thanks to Emma for chairing it.

Our next book is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness:

[en.wikipedia.org]

If you are still on Freedom then please keep reading.

Our next meeting will be on April 20th. I am not sure about the venue. If you feel strongly about the managers attitude and rudeness please email his regional manager and complain. I have never come across such an attitude before.

Toby.Cowan@youngs.co.uk

As soon as I have a suitable venue I will let you know.

Also a very big welcome to Charlotte, Sian & Anne (Belgium), I hope to see you at the next meeting.

Remember if we order three from Rye Books we get 15% discount. 0203 581 1850.

Till next time,

Hoots & haggis,

Chick

Dear Book group,

I have had a meeting with the manager of the Clockhouse. We can now meet in the Blake room on a Wednesday once a month which is all we wanted. Lighting and music to suit us.

The next meeting is due on the 20th April but the Clockhouse is closed that week so we can meet on the 20th somewhere else or meet in the Clockhouse on the 27th April. Please let me know which you prefer sooner rather than later in case I have to find a new venue.

Meeting on the 27th will give those of us who havenít finished Freedom more time.


Best wishes,


Chick

Dear book group,

The general consensus is to meet on the 20th. I have to find an alternative venue but that shouldnít be difficult. I will check out Toasted in Lordship Lane tomorrow and let you know. In May we will be back at the Clockhouse.

Look forward to seeing you all in April.

Bye for now.
