It's back. The return of the wonderful Wine & Cheese Book Club is finally upon us.
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 first selection is Elena Knows by Claudia Piñeiro, an excellent and unconventional murder mystery with a truly standout protagonist (you can find more info on Elena Knows below!).
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
- 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.
About Elena Knows:
Our first selection for the Wine & Cheese Book Club is a doozy from Edinburgh indie Charco Press. Claudia Piñeiro has been called the 'Hitchcock of the River Plate’ but this is a murder mystery with a difference, and Elena is far from your run-of-the-mill gumshoe. This unique novel interweaves crime fiction with intimate tales of morality and the search for individual freedom, as a sickly mother sets out to investigate her daughter's mysterious death.
