October 2017

Courtesy of the Reading Agency, this month we're reading 'The Optimist' by Sophie Kipner. Hopefully you attended the last event to get a free copy, if not there are plenty of copies available in stores and online. Join us for a drink and a chat. Why not review on Amazon as well as on this digital review card for The Optimist

Also, out of the 15 reading groups that have been selected, three will also receive the amazing opportunity to interview Sophie via Skype!! To enter into the prize draw, readers are asked to share their most Tabitha Gray moment – Sophie’s hopelessly romantic, hopelessly hapless and utterly loveable heroine – with @ReadingAgency and @unbounders #SoTabithaGray via Twitter and on their digital review forms, so Sophie can pick her three favourites. Our fingers are crossed!


Venue: Jericho Tavern, 56 Walton Street
Oxford, OX2 6AE United Kingdom

When: Monday 9th October
Time: 6:30 pm

In this warmly witty debut novel, Sophie Kipner takes a satirical look at the extremity of romantic desperation, and pays wry tribute to the deep human need to keep on heroically searching for love despite our manifold absurdities.
