This Saturday, we play host to Roald Dahl and his collection of short stories for a chance to understand the mind of the author who was later known for his immortal children’s books, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach and The BFG.
Dahl also had a genius for adult short fiction, which he wrote throughout his life.

Whether fictionalizing his dramatic exploits as a Royal Air Force pilot during World War II or concocting the ingeniously plotted fables that were dramatized on television as Tales of the Unexpected, Dahl was brilliant at provoking in his readers the overwhelming desire to know what happens next—and at satisfying that desire in ways that feel both surprising and inevitable.

As always, we hold our reviews over indulging coffee and reeling conversations.

You're welcome to join us.
