Short Book Book Club

All members of College are welcome to attend the next meeting of the Short Book Book Club.

The book for discussion is An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.

“A marvellous feat of storytelling…A wrongful conviction powers this Women’s prize-shortlisted novel of the black American middle-class experience”. The Guardian.

This book is a slightly longer read than the usual 200pp max, in the hope people will have more free time over the summer to read.

Advance notice of our Michaelmas Term book which returns to the usual page limit of a maximum of 200pp and will be If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin. The inspiration for the recent film from Oscar award-winning director Barry Jenkins and described as “achingly beautiful” This book explores similar themes to our summer read but with a few decades in between.

The meeting to discuss this book will be at the end of Michaelmas Term, on Monday 9 December.
