Hello every one,
Thanks for taking part in a very good Zoom meeting. Our next book is “In Extremis” by Lindsey Hilsum. I haven’t a date yet but will post one on Monday.

All the best and once again thanks to Sahar for organising the Zoom meeting which works very well and Anita from Canada was able to join.

Book group,

Hope you are enjoying the book. Colvin was quite a reporter. Early on she was mentored by John Hersey and he helped her develop her style of reporting. He wrote a book Hiroshima which I think we should read, it’s short and powerful, 166 pages so perhaps we could do it along with next months book?

You need to sign in to BBC iplayer for that one but well worth it.

A more tenuous connection to Colvin:

When I was in Beirut I met an artist who recreated crystal from dust. During the civil war(which Colvin reported from) there was a “green” line between West & East Beirut . Vartan found a shelled building which housed a photographer’s studio in the green line and collected 60 kg of dust, dissolved them in water and grew crystals from the dust.

So hope to see you all on the 22nd.

Thanks to everyone who joined in a very pleasant meeting.

Our next Zoom meeting is on 23rd September at 8.00pm.

Our next book is"An Orchestra of Minorities" by Chicgozia Obioma

[www.theguardian.com]

Some time in the future I intend moving back to the Clockhouse but with the addition of Zoom to enable three members to join in, one in Canada and another in Norfolk and a couple locally. It should work quite well.

Till next time,
