FEMINIST BOOK CLUB: APRIL
Once a month we are joined by the Feminist Book Club at Further North, to discuss their latest reads, challenging the mind, inclusive and all are welcome.
They’ll be meeting upstairs in our cosy Chapel Allerton bar to discuss ‘This is Pleasure’, by Mary Gaitskill.
The effervescent, well-dressed Quin, a successful book editor and fixture on the New York arts scene, has been accused of repeated unforgivable transgressions toward women in his orbit. But are they unforgivable? And who has the right to forgive him? To Quin’s friend Margot, the wrongdoing is less clear. Alternating Quin’s and Margot’s voices and perspectives, Gaitskill creates a nuanced tragicomedy, one that reveals her characters as whole persons—hurtful and hurting, infuriating and touching, and always deeply recognizable.
Join us from 7.30pm – the Feminist Book Club is open to everyone and is completely inclusive. Drop in for free – whether you have read the book or not, and would like to join in the feminist chats!
