The Fuse Book Club

Housmans has a monthly book club which usually meets on the second Thursday of the month, starting at 7pm in the shop.

This is a friendly, relaxed group, and all book-lovers are welcome. The group reads a lot of non-fiction titles, and some fiction, too. Members are always welcome to suggest the next title, and there's no obligation to come along every month if you don't fancy it.

Fuse members get a 20% discount if you choose to buy the upcoming book from the shop.

If you would like to join the reading group, you are welcome to just show up on the evening, but to be added to the mailing list and kept up to date with details of forthcoming meetings, email catherine[at]housmans.com.

2017 upcoming titles under discussion are:

Thursday 9th March Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
Part memoir, part investigative report, the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer explores the history, politics and ethics of meat-eating.

Thursday 13th April G by John Berger
"a brilliant novel about the search for intimacy in history's private moments", this 1972 novel by influential art critic John Berger also won the Booker Prize.

Thursday 11th May Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine
Blurring the lines between prose, poetry and social criticism, this book by American poet Claudia Rankine explores the politics of race and the imagination in the United States.
