OCTOBER BOOK FEST
3 Bright Ideas
A delightful and absorbing novel about three families spanning 3 centuries whose lives are interconnected revolving around art and love.
For lovers of historical fiction this is a joyous read. ‘The Personal Librarian’ is a collaboration from Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray based on the true story of an African American woman who helped J. P. Morgan build his prestigious and famous manuscript and art collection during the beginning of the 20th century all the while passing as a white woman.
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!
