For our May Reader’s Salon we had a special theme to celebrate Feminist Book Fortnight, and our lively bunch of readers gathered to discuss spring reads and feminist titles.Continue reading Readers’ Salon – May
On a dark and blustery night, with nary a Christmas twinkle to be seen, our readers came out in force for an superbly rejuvenating Readers’ Salon (the first of the year).
There were some tremendous recommendations from some new faces and regulars, plus a spirited discussion on various topics, including (but not limited to) the size of Africa, the dispiriting effect of small town support for their local sports teams, Irish historical accuracy from British correspondents and the annoyance of writing supplementary novels in the footnotes.
Enjoy our readers’ excellent selections below, all available either within Golden Hare or upon order!

Braving the suddenly biting cold of a November night in Edinburgh, our readers came out in force to let us know what they were reading as the days turn short and dark.
From excellent non-fiction recommendations to metamorphic classics to bizarre and hilarious fiction via an exploration of psychopaths in literature, we had a really wonderful time. We hope that the books listed below give you a flavour of the vibe from Readers’ Salon, as well as prompting more inspiration for your own winter reading!

Exposing our minds to new high quality literature is one of our favourite things at Golden Hare, and nothing does that in a more compelling way than our Readers’ Salon. This is an open evening where we encourage people to come along and share what is moving their souls, stimulating their brains or stirring their passions (in a literary sense, naturally!). All the choices on this list were contributed by our fantastic and supportive Readers’ Salon attendees.
The large number of excellent recommendations from those who attended the salon really impressed us this week, so we’ve compiled a list from what was an absolutely heaving and fun-filled Readers’ Salon! We’d heartily recommend diving into any of our readers’ recommendations below.
Make sure that you come along to next month’s Readers Salon on Monday 5th November for more friendly book talk and excellent recommendations!
