Afternoon Book Club

Another book group!

Every second Monday of the month at 2pm in Cakes and Ale Cafe, Carlisle.

The next group is on Monday 14th February and the book group will be discussing Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, available at Bookends with 20% discount.

Hardy’s powerful novel of swift sexual passion and slow-burning loyalty centres on Bathsheba Everdene, a proud working woman whose life is complicated by three different men – respectable farmer Boldwood, seductive Sergeant Troy and devoted Gabriel – making her the object of scandal and betrayal. Vividly portraying the superstitions and traditions of a small rural community, Far from the Madding Crowd shows the precarious position of a woman in a man’s world.
