About the Event
ON WEDNESDAY'S WE READ PINK - A Book Club which books are chosen based purely on the cover's hue.
Not all romcoms and daises; we will have some thrillers, a couple of retellings of Shakespeare, a few memorising memoirs and all-around epic reads.
Everyone is welcome. Come to one, come to some, come to all!
Very laid back in locations around London.
If for any reason you can't make the event, you can always join in on the discussion online at www.thebookslut.com please change your RSVP as soon as possible and message one of our organisers for other people can take your place.
ABOUT THE WHITE ALBUM:
Joan Didion’s hugely influential collection of essays which defines, for many, the America which rose from the ashes of the Sixties.
We tell ourselves stories in order to live. The princess is caged in the consulate. The man with the candy will lead the children into the sea.
In this now legendary journey into the hinterland of the American psyche, Didion searches for stories as the Sixties implode. She waits for Jim Morrison to show up, visits the Black Panthers in prison, parties with Janis Joplin and buys dresses with Charles Manson’s girls. She and her reader emerge, cauterized, from this devastating tour of that age of self-discovery into the harsh light of the morning after.
