Books Banter and Booze tonight 2nd of November

BOOKS, BANTER AND BOOZE. LITERATURE AND REFRESHMENTS…WHAT IS NOT TO LIKE? JOIN US THIS EVENING FOR AN INFORMAL AND FUN EVENING AT THE WILLIAMSON ART GALLERY.


Bring your favourite book for an evening with food and wine, come with friends or join in with others. We are experimenting with developing the two Thursday evenings in the month when we already have a group using the gallery as a meeting venue.
Our Third “book club” will be looking at young adult fiction and there will be books available to take a look at from Oxton Books. Perhaps an opportunity to look at books for Christmas presents as well as exploring a progressive and ever changing genre. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Young_adult_fiction
Food will be available from 6pm until 7pm from The Williamson Cafe and with talking and sharing planned to start from 7pm. Whether you love “The Catcher in the Rye” and “Lord of the Flies”, or more recent novels such as “Hunger Games” or “Harry Potter”, the discussion will be wide and varied.
Doors will open from 6pm. Please note the cafe takes cash only. The bar and food will be available until 8.30pm and while stocks last. Oxton Books, our independent bookshop will be open throughout the evening.
As the  2nd of November is the first Thursday of the month, we will have our regular life drawing class plus the meeting of the Western Front Association so please be considerate of our neighbours when parking (our car park can get filled quickly), alternatively carpool with friends, use public transport or walk if you are able.
