OCTOBER BOOK FEST
3 Bright Ideas
A coming of age story that will stay with you long after you’ve finished, Tiffany McDaniel’s portrayal of a Betty, a young girl growing up in rural Ohio comes straight from the soul.
The Pulitzer Prize winning novel ‘All the Light We Cannot See’ (2015) is the ideal Missed Opportunity read for October. Ten years in the making, this powerful and epic war novel is a stand out read for book clubbers. Mesmerising and bittersweet. Or try Doerr's new novel 'Cloud Cuckoo Land', out this autumn.
An alternative book club read, ‘Talking To Strangers’ investigates the darker side of human nature where strangers' motives and actions come to light. Gladwell's persuasive exploration of mis-understanding and human error, referencing some famous case studies, enables us to understand how and why we can and can’t detect lies. Perfect for the armchair psychologist as well plenty of material for book club debate!
