SYP London – April Book Club – NW by Zadie Smith

April 9, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Monthly Book Club organised by The Society of Young Publishers committee in the bustling heart of London City. Turn up to a central London venue and share your thoughts on the book of the month… Wile away the hours sipping tea (or cocktails!) and have a good old argument about plot, character, genre and anything else that comes to mind. Each month is a different genre and you can put your favourite book forward for reading via our twitter feed.

Date: Monday, 9th April @ 7pm

Location: Mabel’s Bar and Kitchen, 29-30 Maiden Lane, London, WC2E 7JS

Theme: Book Set in London (in conjunction with London Book Fair 2018)

Book: NW by Zadie Smith

Synopsis: Set in northwest London, Zadie Smith’s brilliant tragicomic novel follows four locals—Leah, Natalie, Felix, and Nathan—as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. In private houses and public parks, at work and at play, these Londoners inhabit a complicated place, as beautiful as it is brutal, where the thoroughfares hide the back alleys and taking the high road can sometimes lead you to a dead end. Depicting the modern urban zone—familiar to city-dwellers everywhere—NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, mercurial and vital, like the city itself.
