Event description

Description

We are a group of women who get together regularly to discuss our latest choice of book, current events and all things independence. Our meetings are relaxed and informal and we always enjoy welcoming new members. If you're joining us for the first time then just look for the book. Come along and give it a go!

This month we have chosen The Red Dust Road by Jackie Kay:

From the moment when, as a little girl, she realizes that her skin is a different colour from that of her beloved mum and dad, to the tracing and finding of her birth parents, her Highland mother and Nigerian father, the journey that Jackie Kay undertakes in Red Dust Road is full of unexpected twists, turns and deep emotions. In a book shining with warmth, humour and compassion, she discovers that inheritance is about much more than genes: that we are shaped by songs as much as by cells, and that our internal landscapes are as important as those through which we move. Taking the reader from Glasgow to Lagos and beyond, Red Dust Road is revelatory, redemptive and courageous, unique in its voice and universal in its reach. It is a heart-stopping story of parents and siblings, friends and strangers, belonging and beliefs, biology and destiny, and love. (Goodreads Website)
