We’re delighted to announce Bournville Daytime Book Club has started meeting at Bournville Community Hub.
It will be a chance for men and women of all ages to talk about their favourite books over tea and cake, from 11am-12 noon. And there’s the option of having a sociable picnic lunch afterwards until 1pm. Babies and toddlers are welcome too – colouring and toys available.
The first title will be When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr (author of The Tiger Who Came To Tea).
An essential modern classic, this gripping story is a semi-autobiographical account of a 9-year-old Jewish girl and her family as they flee Nazi Germany at the start of WWII.
Anna is too busy with schoolwork and tobogganing to listen to the talk of Hitler. But one day she and her brother are rushed out of Germany in alarming secrecy, away from everything they know. Their father is wanted by the Nazis – dead or alive. This is the start of a huge adventure, sometimes frightening, very often funny, and always, always exciting.
Judith Kerr was born in Berlin and left Germany in 1933 to escape the Nazis. This novel is based on her own experiences.
Everyone is very welcome. If you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
