North West Members March Book Club

All event fees are listed net of VAT.

Join other North West Members for our March Book Club where we discuss the book of choice: Celestial Bodies written by Jokha Alharthi. 

Celestial Bodies is set in the village of al-Awafi in Oman, where we encounter three sisters: Mayya, who marries Abdallah after a heartbreak; Asma, who marries from a sense of duty; and Khawla who rejects all offers while waiting for her beloved, who has emigrated to Canada. These three women and their families witness Oman evolve from a traditional, slave-owning society slowly redefining itself after the colonial era, to the crossroads of its complex present. Elegantly structured and taut, Celestial Bodies is a coiled spring of a novel, telling of Oman's coming-of-age through the prism of one family's losses and loves.

Come and share your thoughts about the book over a cuppa with fellow Members.
