The Book Group

On the last Tuesday of every month, the Golden Hare closes its doors to the public and opens exclusively to our Book Group members! Julie, the Bookshop Manager, selects a shortlist of three books – usually a new fiction paperback, backlist fiction paperback and non-fiction paperback – for the Book Group to select for the next title.
At the moment there’s no need to book a place for attending the Book Group, just read the book and show up on the night – we always have wine, soft drinks, nibbles and insightful chat in abundance. And, if you’re a member of the bookgroup, you can get 15% off next month’s title when you buy it in-store! And soon you’ll be able to order online, too…

July Book Group

Tuesday 25 July at Golden Hare Books, 6.30pm

In July, we’re feeling ambitious! This was the first month we experimented with everyone putting in suggestions and so the people have spoken. We will be reading Cloud Atlas by the brilliant David Mitchell! And no, it’s not the guy from Peep Show.

Published in 20014, Cloud Atlas was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and has been turned into a film with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. We don’t want to give away too much about this one, but it brings together six interlocking lives ranging from the nineteenth century to the post-apocalyptic future. Epic in every sense, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity’s will to power, and where it will lead us.

But what will we think?

Whether you’re a frequent Book Grouper or have never been before, you’re most welcome at the Golden Hare Book Group. No booking required, just turn up at the bookshop in time to start at 6.30pm – wine, soft drinks and nibbles are provided free of charge!

As ever, those intending to attend will receive 15% off the book group.
