Books & beer. What could be better?

This Thursday, Barnaby’s Book Club will meet in The Brickmakers at 7.30pm to review what they thought of “The Overstory” by Richard Powers.

The story is about nine Americans whose unique experiences with trees bring them together to address the destruction of forests. Powers was inspired to write the work after he encountered giant redwood trees for the first time. His book was shortlisted for the MAN Booker Prize in 2018, and won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction earlier this year.

“Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know”

This Thursday, the Barnaby’s Book Club will be reviewing what they thought of “Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know” by Ranulph Fiennes. Fiennes appears regularly on the news with an epic frozen beard, waving an ice axe in triumph on a summit or at a pole, trumpeting yet another first ascent or crossing. “Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know” is chiefly the account of the post-1987 expeditions – remorseless derring-do ends with crotch rot, kidney stones and a grim catalogue of other physical suffering which reaches a climax in 2000, when our man hacks off five of his frostbitten digits with a Black & Decker.

Meet in the Brickmakers on Thursday 28th March at 7.30pm.
