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.

Map Of A Nation tells the story of the creation of the Ordnance Survey map - the first complete, accurate, affordable map of the British Isles. It's a deliciously readable account of one of the great untold British adventure stories, featuring intrepid individuals lugging brass theodolites up mountains to make the country visible to itself for the first time.

This month's Book Club is meeting at the ADC Theatre Bar as The Ratcatcher is on that week.
