Our first Bookclub of 2020 was a chance for our members to showcase the books they enjoyed in 2019. We’ve accumulated all the titles into a handy document for you to peruse and perhaps find a new favourite? Continue reading Bookclub Favourites 2019
Its been 10 years since we started our book club at Jaffé & Neale Chipping Norton. The group is thriving and meet on the first Wednesday of every month to discuss the latest literary offerings. We also have a group which meets in our Stow-On-The-Wold bookshop. Thanks to one of our regular book club attendees, Nigel Surman; who has kindly been keeping a list of all our book club picks since 2009 which you can read below. Thanks Nigel!

Amy & Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout
In her stunning first novel Elizabeth Strout evokes a teenager’s alienation from her distant mother—and a parent’s rage at the discovery of her daughter’s sexual secrets. In most ways, Isabelle and Amy are like any mother and her 16-year-old daughter, a fierce mix of love and loathing exchanged in their every glance. That they eat, sleep, and work side by side in the gossip-ridden mill town of Shirley Falls only increases the tension. And just when it appears things can’t get any worse, Amy’s sexuality begins to unfold, causing a vast and icy rift between mother and daughter that will remain unbridgeable unless Isabelle examines her own secretive and shameful past.

Just a quick update on future book club dates and books; next months will take place on April the 6th, and we will be looking at Lawrence Osborne’s The Forgiven.
May’s book will be Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See, and we’ll be talking about it on the 4th of May.
For the time being, June and July’s books have yet to be decided, but for anyone who wants to get a head start, September’s book will be A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Weighing in at around 700 pages, we thought a bit of prior warning might be necessary.
As always, our book clubs start at 6:30 pm, and anyone is welcome to attend.
Many thanks to everyone who attended this month’s book club; moving forward, our next meeting will take place on the 9th of March, and we will be taking a look at The Martian by Andy Weir.
Following that April’s book club will be on the 6th, and we will be reading The Forgiven by Lawrence Osborne.
As always, anyone is welcome to attend, and if you have any further questions, or if you would like to sign up to the book club mailing list, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or ask us here in the shop.
January’s book club will take place on Wednesday 20th January at 6:30. This month, we will be looking at Robert Seethaler’s A Whole Life, copies of which are available here in the shop.
