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

Our April WomenInTranslation Book Club pick!

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 …

This is our WomenInTranslation Book Club book - If you fancy getting together for a chat about the book 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
