Current Membership Status : Waiting List - please apply.

We are a friendly and enthusiastic reading group based in the center of Cambridge UK.    

We read current fiction and non-fiction on Prize Lists from the last 2 years.  It is a discussion group based on exploration of these Prize Lists, which sometimes may be challenging and controversial.  Some books selected may not be what one might call 'good reads' but more of a springboard into different aspects of current literature.   

We meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at 12 noon for 12:15 pm at a local Petersfield pub in Cambridge, the Cambridge Blue.

Our schedule:

December 2017 extended meeting : Tuesday 12th December, 'The Power' by Naomi Alderman WINNER OF THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
January 2018 meeting : Tuesday 9th January, 'A Horse Walks Into A Bar' by David Grossman, Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2017
February 2018 meeting : Tuesday 13th February, 'The Underground Railroad' by Colson Whitehead, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2017
March 2018 meeting : Tuesday 13th March, 'Fever Dream' by Samanta Scheweblin, Shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize 2017
