Pageturners Book Discussion Group talks about thought-provoking reads and September’s Wednesday 9th meeting will be no exception with a lively chat guaranteed about The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams.
In 1901, the word ‘Bondmaid’ was discovered missing from the Oxford English Dictionary. This is the story of the girl who stole it.
Set when the women’s suffrage movement was at its height and the Great War loomed, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. It’s a delightful, lyrical and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words, and the power of language to shape the world and our experience of it.
Due to COVID-19 Public Health Restrictions Pageturners is limited to 10 guests. Currently the September meeting is booked out. However, we have enabled a waiting list, so if a vacancy arises the next person on the waiting list will be informed. Also, if there is an overwhelming number of book clubbers interested in the discussion we will look at hosting a daytime meeting.
If you have any concerns registering via Eventbrite please call Jasmine on 6393 8125.
