The Book Group
The next two books to be read are:
Northanger Abbey by Val McDermid. This meeting is on Monday, 15 January at Ian and Jane Lee’s home.

This is the second book in the Austen project, for which six well known contemporary authors were each asked to write an
updated version of Jane Austen’s completed novels. It promises to provide entertaining reading over the Christmas season,
particularly if preceded by a (re)reading of Jane Austen’s original.

Nutshell by Ian McEwan. This meeting is on Monday, 5 March at Alastair and Jill Howie’s home. Told from a
perspective unlike any other, it is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of Britain’s master storytellers. The title comes
from Hamlet “I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself king of infinite space”.

All are very welcome to join us.
