Forthcoming events for Friends 

The Reading Lounge Bookclub: Charlotte Wood, The Natural Way of Things

Just for Friends.  With guest speaker, Susan Hayes, and group discussion.  This month’s book is The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood,

Charlotte Wood is the author of five novels and two books of non-fiction. The Natural Way of Things won the 2016 Stella Prize, was the joint winner of the Prime Minister's Literary Award for Fiction and many other awards. It is the story of two friends, their sisterly love and courage. With extraordinary echoes of The Handmaid's Tale and Lord of the Flies, Wood's book is a compulsively readable, scarifying and deeply moving contemporary novel.

Includes refreshments and reading notes.
