Change of event for June 2016 –
Instead of our usual World War I themed Conversation Cafe for the Boys on the Plaque project at Jubilee Library, we’ll be going on an outing for those who can attend, to the Pavilion Blues exhibition at Brighton Museum instead. (Details below). If you would like to attend, it is free to do so, but please RSVP.
We will meet at the front of Jubilee Library on Wednesday 8th June at 2.30pm and walk across to the Museum from there – we will have a speaker (Jo Palache from Brighton Museum) at the exhibition to discuss it with us. Please bring a proof of your address with you so that it is free to attend (for Brighton and Hove residents).
In addition, our new book for June’s session from the library service is available. This is called The Suicide Club by author and ex BBC documentary maker Andrew Williams. This is a dark, disturbing and untold story of the shadow espionage battle during the First World War.
For all readers of Robert Harris, William Boyd and John le Carre, The Suicide Club is a First World War spy thriller set in Occupied Belgium in 1917, and tells the dark, disturbing and untold story of the shadow espionage battle fought behind the lines. Andrew Williams’ novels possess ‘a richness of characterisation and intelligence that few thrillers can match’ (Sunday Times).
