Book Club at Brunswick Bound

Image
We are starting a book club at Brunswick Bound!

Our first meeting will be at 6.30pm on Wednesday 27 September and we will be discussing Dennis Glover's The Last Man in Europe.

This novel delves into the creation of Orwell's classic work Nineteen Eighty-Four - a book Orwell came to see as his legacy, the culmination of a career spent fighting to preserve the freedoms which the wars and upheavals of the 20th century had threatened.

Written with urgency and in a style not dissimilar to Orwell, The Last Man in Europe should provide some great material for our book club to discuss.

Megan will be hosting our book club.  With almost 20 years experience as a bookseller, many of those spent hosting one book club or another, we are sure you will have an entertaining and informative hour of book talk in her company.

If you'd like to find out more about our book club, email megan@brunswickbound.com.au
