A Slap to the Secretary – and a Guest Post

Many thanks to the Musician for this update on our reading circle meet which the Secretary did not attend. (suitably slapped!)

Book club met on 26 feb at the presidents house to discuss The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas .The book revolves around a group of contemporary suburban Melbournites,it provoked much discussion on the nature of loyalty to friends and family as well as the challenges of relationships and child rearing.Overall the book was well recieved and I would recommend it.Other subjects discussed on the night included the efficacy of genus Euphorbia onskin cancers ,coffee enemas and astronomy.

And details of next book club is at Lovelie’s place 26th March  and the book is the Reader – by Stephen Daldry –  available everywhere – So don’t go to the film read the book Lovely has heard it is much better….
