OCTOBER BOOK FEST
3 Bright Ideas
From the bestselling author of 'A Gentleman in Moscow' Amor Towles transports its audience to a new moment in time. On this occasion it's 1954 in Nebraska and readers join four young 'band of brothers' in an epic journey on The Lincoln Highway - an imaginative adventure that you willingly want to be part of. But don't try to predict where this journey starts and ends. This is a mesmerising story with brave, complex and (some) loveable characters that you won't want to leave behind.
This is a poignant and beautifully told WWII story following four young people trying to save themselves from the invading Red Army. Based on one of the lesser known maritime disasters of the second world war – Ruta Sepetys opens our eyes to this appalling tragedy.
Book season is back with literary festivals and exciting launches and whilst the Den pile grows high we make your selection easier as we pick out 3 illuminating Bright Ideas for you and your book clubs this October.
Our Book of the Moment is a haunting coming of age novel set in Ohio Betty by Tiffany McDaniel. With Anthony Doerr's new book on the horizon our Missed Opportunity is his award winning All The Light We Cannot See, a powerful epic war-time novel and firm book club favourite. Plus those looking for an alternative book club choice why not try Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell - a Wild Card read for the armchair psychologist!
