Thursday 10 February 2022: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

Anthony Burgess – A Clockwork Orange

In 2022, we are working on events for the following texts:

  • Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro 
  • Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo

Due to the current circumstances regarding COVID-19, Cardiff BookTalk will run as an online series of events throughout 2021-22. We hope this will allow us to maintain social distancing and still provide the book group with a difference: discussing expert perspectives and readers’ views about the big ideas in a range of classic and contemporary fiction.

More information will be provided as linked items closer to the events.
