Margate Book Club #20 - Lanny

  • The Margate Bookshop 2 Market Place Margate, Kent United Kingdom (map)

It's Margate Book Club's 20th meet up! This month's read is Lanny by Max Porter, and it’s the first Margate Book Club held at The Margate Bookshop.

"Not far from London, there is a village. This village belongs to the people who live in it and to those who lived in it hundreds of years ago. It belongs to England's mysterious past and its confounding present. It belongs to Mad Pete, the grizzled artist. To ancient Peggy, gossiping at her gate. To families dead for generations, and to those who have only recently moved here.

But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort who has woken from his slumber in the woods. Dead Papa Toothwort, who is listening to them all. Chimerical, audacious, strange and wonderful - a song to difference and imagination, to friendship, youth and love, Lanny is the globally anticipated new novel from Max Porter."

As always, Margate Book Club is open to new members, and those who haven't been for a while! Join them at The Margate Bookshop on Thursday 25 July, 7.30-9.30pm for a chat over a drink with like-minded folk.

Open to all and free to attend, please share with your friends!
