We have been fans of The Portobello Bookshop long before opening S&G Porty, so we are delighted we are collaborating with them with our Bookclub.
Alongside Portobello Books we will be bringing you a series of brilliant reads, beautiful wines and seasonal cheese hosted in Smith & Gertrude Portobello once a month.

The Wine & Cheese Book Club will be hosted in our back room space in Portobello by Jenna & Lily from Portobello Books.
The cost of your ticket includes the following:
  • A copy of that months quite brilliant book club book (please collect from Portobello Books as soon as you have booked)
  • A glass of wine (or soft drink) on arrival to help get the conversation started
  • Cheese. Lots of cheese to keep the discussion flowing

For June we have selected Big Swiss by Jen Beagin

Big Swiss is a dark comedy that explores the ethics of relationships. Greta has moved to the Hudson Valley to start fresh. She works for a sex therapist by transcribing his sessions to text. As she transcribes sessions for one of the clients, who she nicknames 'Big Swiss', Greta begins to form a weird obsession with this stranger she only knows by voice and word. But one day when she brings her dog to the park, she recognises Big Swiss, and soon a new - but not entirely honest - relationship forms between the two. Big Swiss is a smart and highly imaginative novel about modern romance, sex, and trauma.
