Book Club Meeting
Book Club Discussion Meeting: The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
What Happens Here?
Books are amazing, reading them is awesome . . . discussing them with other book lovers - EVEN BETTER! That is what the Little Shop of Magic Book Club is all about, sharing your love and interest in books with other like minded individuals. Each month the club will select a book to read to then meet the third Monday of the month* to discuss it. This month the book is determined at the previous month's meeting.
What Book is Being Read this Month?
This month we are reading The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
"Gosford Park" meets "Groundhog Day" by way of Agatha Christie – the most inventive story you'll read this year.
Tonight, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed... again.
It is meant to be a celebration but it ends in tragedy. As fireworks explode overhead, Evelyn Hardcastle, the young and beautiful daughter of the house, is killed.
But Evelyn will not die just once. Until Aiden – one of the guests summoned to Blackheath for the party – can solve her murder, the day will repeat itself, over and over again. Every time ending with the fateful pistol shot.
The only way to break this cycle is to identify the killer. - THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER -
How are the Books Selected?
Books are chosen each month by the club members for the following month's meeting. Right now we are pulling from realms of speculative fiction. Any club member can suggest titles to be add to the selection list. We are pretty open to any ideas, if there is something you are interested in reading and discussing. Please let us know.
What Sort of Books do You Read?
We are selecting books which fall in genres under the umbrella of Speculative Fiction. Speculative Fiction is a a catch all term for fantasy, science fiction, and horror; as well as, their derivatives, hybrids, and cognate genres like the gothic, dystopia, weird fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, ghost stories, superhero tales, alternate history, steampunk, slipstream, magic realism, fractured fairy tales, and more. It is a super category for all genres that deliberately depart from imitating “consensus reality” of everyday experience. The preference is towards stand alone novels.
I Didn't Read this Months Book, Can I Join?
While it is preferable that you have read the month's book, it is not required. If you are interested in finding out about the Book Club or would like to get going for the next month, please join us this month.
Is there an Entry Fee?
No, it is free to participate in Book Club.
Are there any Prizes?
No, there are no prizes awarded for participating in this event. However, you're talkin' books, what more could you want?
Who Can Join the Book Club?
The book club is intended for adult readers, and is open to anyone that can read and discuss books at that level. While our book choices eschew graphic contenting; topics and materials may touch upon mature themes and may not be suited for children or young adult readers.
