The Fuse Book Club

Housmans has a monthly book club which 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 14th September The Good Immigrant, edited by Nikesh Shukla

Thursday 12th October The Underground Railroad by Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, this novel tells the story of a young enslaved woman as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

Thursday 9th November Four Futures: Life After Capitalism by Peter Frase
Frase imagines how a post-capitalist world might look, deploying the tools of both social science and speculative fiction to explore what communism, rentism, socialism and exterminism might actually entail.
