Broadway Book Club

The next Book Club meeting will be held following 5pm worship on Pentecost Sunday, June 9th, to discuss Francis Spufford’s 2016 novel Golden Hill. Golden Hill won three prizes: the Costa First Novel Award, the RSL Ondaatje Prize, and the Desmond Elliot Prize. It was also shortlisted for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.

“Golden Hill” […] keeps its theme — the moral conundrum of America — ever in its sights, through breakneck chase scenes and dark nights of the soul. It has the high spirits of an eighteenth-century novel, but not the ramshackle mechanics.” (excerpted from The New Yorker)

After the June meeting, we’ll experiment with meeting during July & August for the first time, and we need book suggestions! We favor fiction and memoirs – around 300 pages or less, and not too gloomy (please).
