Hi all

Our April read will be 'The Old Man and the Sea' by Ernest Hemingway.

One of his most famous works, it tells the story of Santiago, an aging Cuban fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Cuba.

The masterpiece won the Pulitzer prize and the Nobel prize for literature.

The book's main themes are perseverance, strength in times of despair and friendship. Quite possibly these we desperately need in these strange times.

We will be having this discussion online via video call on Skype.

We'll meet via video call via Skype. I'll send the invitation to the attendees end of day Friday. Please message me your Skype IDs by then so I can create the group on Skype.

Please join the event only if you will definitely read the book by the deadline and also join the meeting. Definitely a time to be more considerate towards others :)

And the icing on the cake is we will be combining Coffee + Cake with this event. So bring out your creative baking side or buy a cake and make some tea/ coffee.

Looking forward to a lovely, relaxing book discussion!

Happy reading, stay home and stay safe!
