Smith & Gertrude

Golden Hare x Smith & Gertrude Wine & Cheese Book Club - Wednesday 8th December @ 7.30pm

£28.00 Regular price

Round Two! 
Once again, we're collaborating with our favourite independent bookshop Golden Hare books to bring you a series of brilliant reads, beautiful wines and seasonal cheese.
To kick us off we've selected the best translated fiction out there to spur the friendly, discussions that the book club is famous for. Our second selection of this limited run of events is The Employees by Olga Ravn, a superbly concise book that defies categorisation (although we've tried to below!).
About The Employees:

Our second selection for this iteration of the Wine & Cheese Book Club is an excellent (and International Booker Prize-nominated) offering from Lolli Editions. The Employees is a genre-defying blend of sci-fi, political critique, satire and HR report (no, that's not a typo!). Set on an intergalactic ship, this novel is a modern masterpiece of concision, where the brevity of the words belies its extraordinary richness, depth and thoughtfulness. Is it about capitalism? Is it about dreams? Is it about hating holes? You'll have to find out - and we expect the discussion for this book to be fascinating!
The Wine & Cheese Book Club will be hosted downstairs in our wine cellar by David from Golden Hare, one of the best in the business when it comes to leading book chats and who has run the majority of our Wine & Cheese Book Clubs in the past.
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

- we're expecting the Book Club to be extremely popular and because we are limiting the group size to 10 we are also limiting ticket sales to 2 per person.
