The Holy Name Book Club is open to all members of the community, no matter what their age or religion, who enjoy reading fiction. We meet next – over a glass of wine – on Wednesday 9th January 2019 in the Parish Hall on Towers Avenue at 7pm.

The next novel for discussion will be Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall. It was Waugh’s first published novel, in 1928) – the year when the Foundation Stone of the Holy Name church was laid. This will be our 90th anniversary celebration read.

In November we discussed Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie. It won the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2018 and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2017.

You are most welcome to join us but please ensure you have read the book beforehand as the discussion is confined to the book, its plot, characterisation, narrative etc.
