‘I don’t think I’ve ever read anything that conveys so well the joys, terrors and pitfalls of reading’ - Diana Wynne Jones

The Women in Translation Book Club provides a free, friendly and gentle environment in which opinions are shared and new appreciations can be discovered. There is wine, curious minds and relaxed conversation around work in translation– all are welcome.

Our April Women In Trans lation Book Club pick is Inkheart.

Need a sprinkle of magic and a good dose of escapism - this stunning fantasy adventure will do just the trick! Inkheart, written by German writer Cornelia Funke and translated by Anthea Bell, is a modern classic and a treat for all ages!

Meggie loves stories, but her father, Mo, hasn’t read to her since her mother disappeared. When a stranger knocks at their door, Mo is forced to reveal an extraordinary secret - when he reads aloud, words come alive, and dangerous characters step out of the pages.

Suddenly Meggie is living the kind of adventure she has only read about in books, but this one will change her life for ever …

As this is our WomenInTranslation Book Club book we have it at a special discount to order through our shop: HERE. \ \ In light of COVID-19 we’ll be meeting online on Monday 20th April at 7pm on zoom. We’ll share the link here and on the event’s facebook page on the day!
