New term. New books. New pencil case.

Summer holidays and the start of the new school year have resulted in a quiet couple of months for the New Parents Book Group. Actually, when I say ‘quiet’ what I really mean is ‘nobody could make it’. So we didn’t get to talk about Hannah Kent’s debut novel, Burial Rites (Icelandic, historical, claustrophobic) or Her Beautiful Career, Rachel Cooke’s biographies of ten professional women of the 50s (vivid, witty, astonishing). Hopefully we’ll get to catch up at our next meeting: 10.30am on 9 October when we’ll be discussing All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld. Look forward to seeing you then.
