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 please change your RSVP as soon as possible and message one of our organisers for other people can take your place.


Pulitzer Prize winner and American master Anne Tyler brings us an inspired, witty and irresistible contemporary take on one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies.

Kate Battista feels stuck. How did she end up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny? Plus, she's always in trouble at work - her pre-school charges adore her, but their parents don't always appreciate her unusual opinions and forthright manner.

Dr. Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There's only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr, all would be lost.

When Dr. Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he's really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to bring her around?
