Our next next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st of January at 7:30 pm in the library when we'll discuss “Frankenstein; or the modern Prometheus” by Mary Shelley. Everyone welcome, and we hope to be offering drinks and nibbles as well!

Since our chosen book is relatively short, just under two hundred pages, it was suggested that we select an optional "companion read" to provide a "compare and contrast" element to our discussion. Of the many books said to have been influenced by “Frankenstein” the most commonly cited is “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson. Again, this is only a suggestion, but it’s short, not 90 pages in my copy, and can probably be finished in a single sitting.

If you want to read a bit more about how and why we decided on Frankenstein for our next book, head over to the "Our next book will be Frankenstein" page on the Harbury Village Library blog. There's also a "What I thought about ... A Tale of Two Cities" page as well. 

If you would like us to send you information about what book we're going to read next, and what we thought of the ones we've already read, please fill in the sign up for our eMail form. There will be one, possibly two, eMails a month at most and every eMail includes the option to unsubscribe.

Alternatively, you can just eMail us at and we'll add you to our Book Group mailing list.
