The Book Club meets monthly over drinks, and everybody is welcome to attend, whether they've had the chance to read the book or not.

This month's read has a backstage setting, which inspired Emma to suggest it ...

"It is 1950 and the Liverpool repertory theatre company is rehearsing its Christmas production of Peter Pan, a story of childhood innocence and loss. Stella has been taken on as assistant stage manager and quickly becomes obsessed with Meredith, the dissolute director. But it is only when the celebrated Oโ€™Hara arrives to take the lead, that a different drama unfolds. In it, he and Stella are bound together in a past that neither dares to interpret."
