The Book Club meets on the 1st Monday every other month. We’re meeting online at the moment. It provides an opportunity to meet other readers in the Trust and discuss fiction and non-fiction based on clinical themes. All colleagues are welcome to come along and join the discussion. If you would like further information please contact email@example.com.
In December we’ll be reading Year of Wonders, by Geraldine Brooks. We’ll meet online on Monday 7th December at 5pm.
Whilst we're not ‘escaping’ the pandemic with this one, we are at least going to another time…
'When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love. As she struggles to survive and grow, a year of catastrophe becomes instead annus mirabilis, a "year of wonders."
Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wonders is a richly detailed evocation of a singular moment in history'.
