A Novel Idea – A Collaboration with Buffalo Street Books
April 9, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
You could read a book alone, or you could read a book amongst new friends whilst lounging in 18th century Parisian furniture and drinking a historical punch. Hopefully you’ve chosen the latter and are planning on joining us this month for a good read. Hosted by Buffalo Street Books General Manager Asha Sanakar this is an up tempo book club guaranteed to be filled with prizes, fun and laughter (thank you cocktails). Books are available for sale at Buffalo Street Books or Argos Inn.
Up first: Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene. First published in 1959, Our Man in Havana is an espionage thriller, a penetrating character study, and a political satire that still resonates today. Conceived by Graham Greene’s its the tale of a man in Havana, Wormold, a former vacuum-cleaner salesman turned reluctant secret agent out of economic necessity. To keep his job, he files bogus reports based on Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare and dreams up military installations from vacuum-cleaner designs. Then his stories start coming disturbingly true.
