The book for August’s Book Club meeting is: According to Yes, by Dawn French.
Here is a description from Good Reads:
The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy – otherwise known as Manhattan’s Upper East Side – has its own rigid code of behaviour. It’s a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family.
Emotional displays – unacceptable.
Unruly behaviour – definitely not welcome.
Fun – no thanks.
This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham’s kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint.
So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn’t read the rule book.
For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying . . . yes?
Until the group is more established, we’re asking you to source your own copy of the books for now. Once we have established membership we’ll sign up to borrow book sets from the public library.
Here is where you can search to find a copy of the book to borrow:
- Search Exeter Health Library Catalogue
- Search Devon Libraries public catalogue
- Search on Amazon.co.uk
The next Book Club meeting is Thursday 10th August, 12:30-13:30 in the Library Meeting Room.
Don’t forget, if you can’t come in person to the meeting, you are welcome to send us your comments online via this blog site, or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
