After the great success of the popular first Lightbox Literary Festival in April 2017, we felt inspired to offer something more for our book-loving visitors. So starting in August 2017, our new book group will meet on the 1st Thursday of every month at Lightbox Lates.
All are welcome to join, read the books, and get involved in a bit of friendly literary discussion. Meetings will take place from 6.00pm to approximately 8.00pm, and attendees are welcome to have dinner at Seasons Cafe, which will be open serving a tapas menu till 9.30pm.
Thurs 3 August | A Spool of Blue Thread, by Anne Tyler
"It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon." This is how Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate togetherness: an indefinable, enviable kind of specialness. But they are also like all families, in that the stories they tell themselves reveal only part of the picture.
