Tonight’s first meeting of the Purple Carrot Book Symposium (from the Greek meaning “to drink together” – a forum for debate and chatter a cup of tea or glass of wine) – is to be a loosely held together affair. Having seen much talk on social media about lists of favourite music, plays, books, people – the lists are manyfold – it was thought this first forray in the murky world of literature could be a show and tell (or just tell) about your favourite book, books, or even books that you think others should read.
Come along this evening to help shape and build this into something accessible for people who like to read and talk about and range of literature but don’t always have the time or commitment to sign up to 12 months of hard reading.
For now there is no specific format, but the idea is to have a couple of books each month for discussion classic, new, fiction, fact I don’t believe it really matters. Maybe you’ll read one, or both, or none, but that shouldn’t stop you from finding out about them.
We’ll provide a drink (tea / coffee / glass of wine) and nibbles you provide the thirst for knowledge, energy, enthusiasm, or just doze quietly in the corner – the choice is yours
7.15pm – 9.45pm – £5
