The Wild Iris by Louise Glück – 16 February 2022 – Meeting of The English Book Club
**Venue to be confirmed closer to the start date. Meetings to take place at Finnbrit or online. Contact Finnbrit office for more details**
The Wild Iris by Louise Glück
The English Book Club’s new year begins with Joseph Heller’s classic Catch-22 (1961). In February, we read our first full collection of poetry, The Wild Iris (1992) by the recent Nobel laureate Louise Glück. Octavia Butler’s speculative Parable of the Sower (1993) brings us fictionally to 2024 in March, while Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (2003) is likely a wild ride, too, in April. In May, we finish off with the not-too-distant Booker winner Girl, Woman, Other (2019) by Bernardine Evaristo.
During the season, the Book Club meets once a month. The meetings start at 18:00 and end at 20:00.
