Smith & Gertrude

Golden Hare x Smith & Gertrude Wine & Cheese Book Club - Wednesday 29th March @ 7.30pm

£28.00 Regular price

Once again, we're collaborating with one of our favourite independent bookshops Golden Hare books to bring you a series of brilliant reads, beautiful wines and seasonal cheese.
For March we have selected Land of Snow and Ashes by Petra Rautiainen.
Finnish Lapland, 1944. A young Finnish soldier is called to work as an interpreter at a Nazi prison camp. Surrounded by cruelty and death, he struggles to hold on to his humanity. When peace comes, the crimes are buried beneath the snow and ice. A few years later, journalist Inkeri is assigned to investigate the rapid development of remote Western Lapland. Her real motivation is more personal - she is following a lead on her husband, who disappeared during the war. But the villagers don't want to dwell on the past, and Inkeri's questions provoke hostility and suspicious silences. As she learns more about her mysterious tenant, Olavi, and tries to befriend a young Sami girl, she begins to uncover traces of disturbing facts that were never supposed to come to light.
The Wine & Cheese Book Club will be hosted downstairs in our wine cellar by Jenna from Golden Hare, who is incredibly excited to be taking over from David leading the book chat.
 The cost of your ticket includes the following:
  • A copy of that months quite brilliant book club book (available to be collected from Golden Hare Books as soon as you have booked)
  • A glass of wine on arrival to help get the conversation started
  • Cheese. Lots of cheese to keep the discussion flowing

Please note:

- the book club takes place in our wine cellar to which there is only step access. Sincere apologies for any access issues this causes.

- we will happily refund any tickets purchased at least 1 month prior to the event date. Any refunds for cancellations made with less than a months notice will be based solely on us being able to re-sell the ticket.
