Stilettos Network Wolverhampton Book Club - Burning Chrome
Wed 26 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
"Burning Chrome", a collection of short stories by William Gibson, also associated with speculative fiction but this time with a harder sci-fi edge from the author credited with coining the term "cyberspace". With 10 stories in the collection, including Johnny Mnemonic - the 1995 film starring Keanu Reeves - hopefully there will be at least one which grabs your attention
If you have never been to a Book Club, or don't seem to find the time to read, Stilettos Book clubs are perfect for you. It's very relaxed and all welcome, even if they haven't quite managed to read the book! Here is the lowdown.....
What is Book Club?
We are all given 4-6 weeks to read the same book. We then come together to discuss and share thoughts over dinner. The ticket price is for attending the meeting, and covers dinner - a 2-course meal with a glass of wine.
Reading is great exercise for the mind. And although we are all mega-busy, reading a book forces us to take time out for ourselves. It's also a great chance to meet people and network.
There is much head-scratching that goes into choosing the book. Our experience of Book Club is that the books that have been enjoyed the most are the ones chosen by the group. We like to read books that are well-written and are relevant to us as women.
