Jac Saorsa – Like Any Other Woman

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

  • Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro 
  • Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo
  • A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

Due to the current circumstances regarding COVID-19, Cardiff BookTalk will continue to run as an online series of events until at least February 2022. 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.
