Virtual Book Club Discussion: Heaven
Join us and share your passion for reading! Heaven by Mieko Kawakami has been revealed as our new book.
Every two months we meet in person and virtually over tea and biscuits to discuss some of the best works in contemporary literature. We’ll explore short stories, novels, non-fiction, poetry, and works in translation, making these informal and friendly sessions the perfect way to meet like-minded readers and to discover exciting new reads. We’ll always choose books that are easy to purchase in hard copy online or in e-book format.
We are reading Heaven by Mieko Kawakami (published by Picador) during June and July 2022. Shortlisted for the International Booker Prize 2022, this sharp and illuminating novel about a fourteen-year-old boy subjected to relentless bullying was described by Cosmopolitan as ‘a sucker-punch of a story that implores you to question even your own morality.’
Spaces are limited so we recommend booking your place in advance. This discussion will take place via Zoom – further details will be sent to you a few days prior to the event.
Place an order with The Book Hive. Mention the NCW Book Club and you can purchase Heaven with a 20% discount. The book is also available for purchase direct from the publisher via the Pan Macmillan website.
