Our Women In Translation book club offers a feminist, globe trotting year of reading. It provides a free, friendly and gentle environment in which opinions are shared and new appreciations can be discovered. It's a place for curious minds and relaxed conversation hosted by poet and translator Annie Rutherford. Come and join our warm bookish group – all are welcome.
During the pandemic we are meeting online, and on the afternoon of book club we'll send everyone the link to join the chat. We read and discuss one book each month so we invite readers to sign up for individual discussions - althrough there is a core group of regulars, new faces join each discussion and some people dip in and out depending on whether the book grabs their attention.
