Launched in May 2018, the Dulwich WI Book Club, The WISE Owls, meet every third Wednesday of the month to discuss the month’s read with a glass of wine, or two – sometimes three!

We get together at the Cherry Tree Pub on Grove Vale – not too far from East Dulwich station from 7.15pm. What better way of relaxing after work…

Bring your book suggestions with you and remember there must be an audio version too!!

The book being discussed at the March meeting is 

“A Keeper” by Graham Norton

Elizabeth Keane returns to Ireland after her mother’s death, intent only on wrapping up that dismal part of her life. There is nothing here for her; she wonders if there ever was. The house of her childhood is stuffed full of useless things, her mother’s presence already fading. And perhaps, had she not found the small stash of letters, the truth would never have come to light.

 40 years earlier, a young woman stumbles from a remote stone house, the night quiet but for the tireless wind that circles her as she hurries further into the darkness away from the cliffs and the sea. She has no sense of where she is going, only that she must keep on.

 This compelling new novel confirms Graham Norton’s status as a fresh, literary voice, bringing his clear-eyed understanding of human nature and its darkest flaws.

 ‘Atmospheric, creepy and impossible to put down.’ the TIMES

‘A compelling and moving story, expertly told, that will draw you in and keep you in its grip until the last page.’ DAILY EXPRESS

‘Magnificent … his writing is evocative and perfect. His grasp of human loneliness and longing is beautiful and comforting.’ MARIAN KEYES

Happy reading and see you all at the next meeting scheduled for Wednesday 18th March, at the Cherry Tree at 7.15pm.
