Top Picks from the Third Thursday Bookgroup

This is our latest bookgroup that started in March 2012. Unsurprisingly, it meets on the Third Thursday of the month and the books are chosen each month by it’s members.

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

Late on a hot summer night at the tail end of 1965, Charlie Bucktin, a precocious and bookish boy of thirteen, is startled by a knock on his window. His visitor is Jasper Jones. By turns heartbreaking, hilarious, tender and wise, Jasper Jones is a novel to treasure.

Dubliners by James Joyce

Joyce’s first major work brought his city to the world for the first time. Rooted in the rich detail of Dublin life, portraying ordinary, often defeated lives with unflinching realism, he writes of social decline, corruption and failure, yet creates a brilliantly compelling, unique vision of the world and of human experience.

If you’d like to join one of our bookclubs do sign-up for our monthly newsletter – that way you’ll be first to hear when places become available! It’s also well worth asking at your local library or other nearby community organisations as many are now running local bookclubs.
