Welcome to the Sotonettes’ Book Club!
We are skipping our normal July meeting and going on an away day to Bath instead. We’ll be visiting Persephone books, where we will discuss this month’s book ‘Maid’ by Stephanie Land but we will have time for some sightseeing too. If you are planning to join us please let Penny know either in the WhatsApp chat or by emailing email@example.com
Normally the Sotonettes Book Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 7pm – 9pm (except during December). There is no charge to attend and both members and non-members of the Sotonettes are very welcome.
The Book Club has a general ‘female’ theme such as female authors and leading characters, and we are always open to suggestions! We plan on mixing things up a bit, from classics to contemporary, across a range of genres.
We don’t mind if you haven’t finished the book, seen a film version, or are just curious to find out more.
The books we will be reading in 2022 are:
- July: ‘Maid’ by Stephanie Land
- August: ‘A Long Petal of the Sea’ by Isabelle Allende
- September: ‘Alone in Antarctica’ by Felicity Aston
- October: ‘The Girl with the Louding Voice’ by Abi Daré
- November: ‘The Five: The Untold Lives of Women Killed by Jack the Ripper’ by Hallie Rubenhold
- January: ‘Sugar’ by Bernice L McFadden
- February: ‘In Black and White’ by Alexandra Wilson
