The next free Conversation Cafe session for The Boys on the Plaque project takes place this month on Wednesday July 13th 2.30-4.30pm. The session will be in the Tony Miller Reading Room AKA Rare Books Archive on the Second Floor of Jubilee Library, Brighton.
This month, academic and expert on suffragism Dr Anne Logan discusses the role of women in the First World War.. She’ll be showing images and discussing her work in an informal way, linking with the activities in The Boys on the Plaque project, an HLF funded project.
If you’d like to join in with the book reading for the summer (we get our next book in September), then there are copies enough for everyone who attends the Conversation Cafe group.
This is 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).
