Dear Book clubbers,

I invited Michel Faber to our meeting but sadly he cant come. He did send this though:

Dear Chick,

I don't mind you asking at all, and please send my best wishes to everyone at the book club and tell them that I would have loved to be there. On Wednesday I am actually booked to attend a Canongate event in Ladbroke Grove but I think it's highly likely I will have to cancel this at the last minute.

So maybe I should have asked before.

Look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

Chick

I met up with the partner of Bianca Son yesterday. Sadly Bianca died suddenly on 30th June. Bianca had just finished her PhD at Soas and was looking forward to having more time for activities such as the book club. She had a very interesting life and I will send out a brief synopsis soon.


Hope to see you all soon.

Greetings,


The next meeting is on 29th October at the Clockhouse. Sorry it's so far away but lots of time to read the book.


For those of you who new Bianca I have sent a brief history of this remarkable woman.


For those of you who never met her you are welcome to read her history.

For those who ordered books, they are at Rye Books.


Thanks,




Chick

Greetings,

Michel Faber's Latest book.

I have seven copies of this not yet published book for any takers if you are prepared to review it and it may be some of you will have a video interview.


It's called "The Book of Strange New Things" and these copies are not proof read so are unusual and may be fun. First come first served.


Thanks





Chick.

Greetings and thanks to everyone who came to last Wednesdays meeting.
A big welcome to Claire and Laura.
Our next book is The Other Side of the Bridge by Mary Lawson.

[www.theguardian.com]
Those who wanted copies they are in Rye books waiting for collection.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 26th November at the Clockhouse in the Blake room upstairs.
Claire can you send me an email address please.
We will set a date for our December meal, probably Wednesday 10th of December, how does that suit you?

Cheers

Dear book clubbers,
The general feeling I am getting is the preference for the December meal is the Sema Thai in Lordship Lane on the 10th 0r 11th December. I have no preference for the dates but will you please let me know your preferred date and are you happy with Sema Thai or would you prefer somewhere else? There are several good Indian restaurants including Tandoori Nights and a good Chinese. The sooner we book the better.
There are still two books to collect from Rye Books.
See you on the 26th.
Cheers
Chick

Hi Chick

I won't be able to make it this week but do keep me posted on next month's book. I am hoping to be able to attend the dinner but just need to check work diary.

Thanks,
Caroline

Do try and come along tonight whether you have read the book or not. We are lucky to have a visit from Michel Faber, a world class author, is coming to visit our little band of book worms.


Cheers,

Chick

Hi all
Sorry to have missed the last get together. Still on holiday and only just finished 'The other side of the bridge', which I thought was fantastic. Not sure I can make the Christmas meal as land that day. I see the next book has been chosen so will get onto downloading it ready for the 7th.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and see you all in the new year.
Claire
