Smith & Gertrude

The Portobello Bookshop x Smith & Gertrude Wine & Cheese Book Club - Thursday 15th February 2024 @ 7.30pm

£29.00 Regular price

We have been fans of The Portobello Bookshop long before opening S&G Porty, so we are delighted we now get to collaborate 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 Kira from Portobello Books.
The cost of your ticket includes the following:
  • A copy of that months quite brilliant book club book (available to be collected from Portobello 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

For February we have selected Fight Night by Miriam Toews

You are a small thing, and you must learn to fight. Swiv has taken this advice too literally. Now she's suspended from school, in the care of her foul-mouthed, hilarious grandmother. Mom is busy being pregnant, so Grandma gives Swiv a very different education. Swiv learns maths with Amish jigsaws and How to Dig a Winter Grave. Grandma's methods may be unorthodox, but she has faced the worst of life with a wild, independent spirit and this is what she hopes to pass on. Time is running short. Grandma's health is failing and the baby is on the way - can Grandma inspire this fire in Swiv, and ensure it never goes out? Poignant, hilarious and deeply moving, Fight Night is a girl's love letter to the women raising her and a tribute to one family's fighting spirit.
