With two meetings to date, focussing on The Tobacco Keeper by Ali Bader (BQFP, 2011) and Out of It by Selma Dabbagh (Bloomsbury, 2011) the Banipal Book Club has already received some great publicity and hopes to attract many new and varied participants!
Celia Topping wrote about the second meeting for Brownbook. The article, published on June 7th, can be accessed here, alongside some great pictures. An article on the first meeting, by Gemma Champ, also appeared in The National. To read, click here.
The next meeting will take place on June 28th and everybody is welcome to participate.
