Hosted by Alex Peake-Tomkinson, each session is curated around a specific theme and features carefully chosen booksto provide the basis for our discussion, which is always light-hearted, informal and fun.
June's club, themed 'Second Chances', will be discussing Winifred Wilson's delightful Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, which follow a governess sent by an employment agency to the wrong address, where she encounters a glamorous night-club singer, Miss LaFosse.
'The sheer fun, the light-heartedness' in this wonderful 1938 book 'feels closer to a Fred Astaire film than anything else', comments Henrietta Twycross-Martin - who found Miss Pettigrew for Persephone Books - in the book's preface.
'Why has it taken more than half a century for this wonderful flight of humour to be rediscovered?' -The Guardian
