Kazuo Ishiguro – Klara and the Sun

We are currently confirming dates and speakers for Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado and The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot. More details soon!

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.
