Book Group Online: Things Fall ApartLed by Peter Hammond 11th February
This event will be held on Zoom. The invitation to join the event will be sent by email a day in advance. Online sales will not be available from this time.
To continue our theme of Black Lives Matter, ‘Things Fall Apart’ by Chinua Achebe is our choice this month. A 1958 debut novel, it is the first by an African writer to receive global acclaim and is widely read and studied in schools and universities. Set in pre-colonial Southeastern Nigeria, the story is a tragedy for Okonkwo, an important man in the Obi tribe when white men first appear in his country. Peter Hammond will host the discussion.
