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.
Please support the bookshop & the bookclub by ordering your books through Lighthouse!
