At the last meeting of the book club we discussed 'THE PARIS WIFE' by Paula McLain. There was a general consensus that it was a great book. People found it easy to read, entertaining and very informative about Hemingway's life. They felt it was more than a biography and as many are Hemingway fans they felt it gave new insights into his life and that of his first wife, Hadley.

The next meeting will be on Monday 3rd October at 6.30pm.
