Book Club Announcement

October 14th at 7.30pm - FREE

Our October Book Club Selection is The Empire of The Sun, the classic award-winning novel made famous by Steven Spielberg's film of the same name. The novel takes place in Shanghai in 1941 and tells of a young boy's struggle to survive World War II in China, including deprivation and starvation, internment camps and death marches.

We will be showing the Spielberg film, which stars Christian Bale, John Malkovich, Miranda Richardson, and Nigel Havers, on Wednesday, October 7th at 8 pm.

Those who buy a book at The Bookworm can enjoy a free drink at the book club meeting on Wednesday, October 14.
