Bookenders Bookclub

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 0

Chinchilla’s Bookenders Bookclub next meet will be Thursday 5 October – this month we will be discussing the novel “Our souls at night” by Kent Haruf. This is Haruf’s final novel, as he has since passed away from cancer.

Would you have the courage to visit your neighbor and ask him to sleep with you? This is what Addie Moore did one day. Now I can hear you all say, “this sounds like any Mills & Boon novel” – but there is a twist. The couple in question are, politely put – of the older generation. “Eww”, I can hear you groan. “Not granny porn!” No it’s not like that; Addie did only want to sleep beside her gentleman friend. This is the story of their brave adventure to forge a new relationship. Their road is not a smooth one. Just as Romeo and Juliet faced opposition, so do our two friends. It is a gentle and thought provoking read.

P.S. I have seen that Robert Redfern is playing the lead male role in the movie version – now what was I saying about granny porn?

 

Do you love to talk about books at every opportunity? Been thinking about expanding your reading horizons? Want to meet some like-minded people or make some new friends? Join the Club!

Bookenders Bookclub is a great way to venture outside your reading comfort-zone.

The Bookenders Bookclub meets at the Chinchilla Library on the first Thursday of every month at 5.00pm, and new members are welcome to join us! Come along to our informal and friendly group where we’ll discuss life, the universe, and books over a great cup of coffee.
