APRIL TAKES TO THE ROAD
3 Bright Ideas

BOOK OF THE MOMENT
This 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction tells the remarkable journey of one young woman’s escape from working on a southern cotton plantation in Georgia to try and make a new life in the north. The story is brutal but totally inspirational.
MISSED OPPORTUNITY
The assumption would be that ordinary people aren’t interesting, but Anne Tyler keeps us wonderfully absorbed with this short but thoroughly enjoyable tale about just that – a gem of a read for a lazy weekend.
THE WILD CARD
‘The Enchanted April’ brings together four very different women looking to escape dreary London for the sunshine. Each independently take up the offer of an advertisement in the Times newspaper.

‘To those who appreciate Wisteria and sunshine. Small medieval castle to be let for the month of April’.

Take to the road this month with our Three Bright Ideas for April. Our Book of the Moment is 'The Underground Railroad' by the twice Pulitzer Prize Winner, Colson Whitehead, selected in good time for you to read before the highly anticipated television series - airing on Amazon Prime on 14th May. Our Missed Opportunity is by one of our favourite authors, Anne Tyler, whose novel 'Redhead by the Side of the Road' is out in paperback from 1 April. We also feature the aptly titled,'The Enchanted April' recommended by one of our Den readers.
