Five Leaves Book Group: Scavengers by Darren Simpson
Date(s) - Wednesday, 31st July
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop
Unusually for our book group, our choice this month is a young adult fiction novel, by a local writer.
The theme is what happens when you break the rules… the most important is to NEVER go beyond the wall, never to go Outside. So, what will happen?
Landfill is a boy raised with animals behind the walls of Hinterland – an industrial landscape succumbing to weeds and wild flowers. His guardian, a tormented scavenger called Babagoo, protects him from the horrors of Outside. But as he gets older, Landfill’s curiosity is winning out over obedience and he begins to question the whether Outside is deserving of such fear and loathing…
Our book group is open, and you can come to one event or them all. All we ask is you read the book in advance.
For the second half of the evening, Darren will join us, not for a “reading” but to discuss issues raised in the first half!
We don’t mind where you get the book, but in the lead up we offer 15% discount on book group books.
Free, refreshments provided
