OPEN BOOK CLUB

Our open book club is for anyone who has read the book we select for discussion each month. No long term commitments necessary. The next book for discussion is: 

The Narrow road to the Deep North – Richard Flanagan

The Narrow Road To The Deep North has been described as a novel of the cruelty of war, the tenuousness of life and the impossibility of love.

It is August, 1943. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma death railway, Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his past love affair with his uncle’s young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 17th July at 7pm.

If you have read this book, feel free to attend the discussion by emailing the Library at library@willoughby.nsw.gov.au.
