Thursday 2 July - Art by Yasmina Reza (Facilitated by Elizabeth Tulloh ) - 10.30am ONLY.

The Tony Award-winning play that focuses on the meaning of art (in the form of a solid white painting) and friendship, to both the man who bought the painting and the two friends who come to see it.

Thursday 6 August - The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton (Facilitated by Fiona Clarke)

Set in seventeenth century Amsterdam--a city ruled by glittering wealth and oppressive religion--a masterful debut steeped in atmosphere and shimmering with mystery.

Thursday 3 September - The Fireflires of Autumn (short stories) by Moreno Giovannoni (Facilitated by Elizabeth Tulloh)

The Fireflies of Autumn takes us to the olive groves and piazzas of this little-known Tuscan village. There we meet Bucchione, who was haunted by the Angel of Sadness; Lo Zena, his neighbour, with whom he feuded for forty years; Tommaso the Killer, the Adulteress, the Dead Boy and many others. These are tales of war and migration, feasts and misfortunes – of a people and their place over the course of the twentieth century.

Thursday 1 October - Bruny by Heather Rose (Facilitated by Fiona Clarke)

Why is a massive bridge being built to connect the sleepy island of Bruny with the mainland of Tasmania? And why have terrorists blown it up? When the Bruny bridge is bombed, UN troubleshooter Astrid Coleman agrees to return home to help her brother before an upcoming election. But this is no simple task. Her brother and sister are on either side of politics, the community is full of conspiracy theories, her mother is fading and her father is quoting Shakespeare. Only on Bruny does the world seem sane. Until Astrid discovers how far the government is willing to go.

Thursday 5 November - With Just One Suitcase by Cheryl Koenig (Facilitated by Elizabeth Tulloh)

This epic book, spanning two continents, recounts the story of three generations of two families whose lives unexpectedly intersect in their adopted country. Beautifully capturing the loss faced when war dislocates families, it also tells of the struggles and challenges of starting anew and adapting to a different way of life. With Just One Suitcase serves as a tribute to the courage and resilience of two men who bear the scars of war, and face adversity without surrendering their optimism for the future.
