BOOK NOW

As many readers know, Conway Hall has been home to the independent publisher, Istros Books, for the past 5 years. Next month, we shall be welcoming another publisher, as Peter Owen move into the Fox room on the 2nd floor. With two indy publishers and a wonderful library on our premises, we thought it a good time for a new literary initiative: a monthly book club for members and friends, where we discuss some of the titles produced by our resident publishers, as well as the occasional guest sessions hosted by staff and other residents.

The very first session of the book club will be held on Friday, 24th February at 6pm, and will be a preliminary meeting to get to know each other and get hold of the first title on our reading list: the classic Shusako Endo novel, Silence.

We have chosen Silence as our first book, since it is published by Peter Owen and has just been made into a feature film by Martin Scorsese, showing at cinemas now.

The book club will be held on the fourth Friday of every month, in the Conway Hall Library from 6-7:30pm.

All titles published by Peter Owen or Istros will be sold at half price to book club members.

The book club is free, although please reserve your place on Eventbrite
