Event description

Description

As many readers know, Conway Hall has been home to the independent publisher, Istros Books, for the past 5 years. Next month, we shall be welcoming another publisher, as Peter Owen move into the Fox room on the 2nd floor. With two indy publishers and a wonderful library on our premises, we thought it a good time for a new literary initiative: a monthly book club for members and friends, where we discuss some of the titles produced by our resident publishers, as well as the occasional guest sessions hosted by staff and other residents.

The very first session of the book club will be held on Friday, 24th February at 6pm, and will be a preliminary meeting to get to know each other and get hold of the first title on our reading list: the classic Shusako Endo novel, Silence.

We have chosen Silence as our first book, since it is published by Peter Owen and has just been made into a feature film by Martin Scorsese, showing at cinemas now.

The book club will be held on the fourth Friday of every month, in the Conway Hall Library from 6-7:30pm.
All titles published by Peter Owen or Istros will be sold at half price to book club members.

We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our building, the Library is not currently accessible to wheelchair users or those with limited mobility, we are happy to discuss with you how we can make the contents and materials accessible to you. We carefully monitor which events are held in the Library, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone should be able to attend events in the future.
