Ready to Join?

During our last get-together in April, the group could not make up our mind regarding the book for the next meeting. Therefore, we decided to pick up one of the suggestions made during the meeting in March that several people were interested in: "Nutshell" by Ian McEwan.

Ian McEwan is an English novelist and screenwriter. In Protected content , The Times featured him on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since Protected content and The Daily Telegraph ranked him number 19 in their list of the "100 most powerful people in British culture". His probably most famous novel, "Atonement" Protected content , was adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy. "Nutshell", published in Protected content , is a story told from a quite unusual perspective: an unborn baby that overhears plans for a murder.

The book has been translated to various languages, including Portuguese (“Enclausurado”) and German (“Nussschale”).

The meeting will take place in Protected content There is a snack bar that offers some options for food and drinks. While being a pleasant open air space, there is a roof protecting the sitting area in case of rain. Please don't forget to bring a sweater/jacket in case of cool weather.

We are looking forward to meeting you there and hearing your thoughts about the book!
