The Tasting Notes Book Club aims to bring together book enthusiasts through their love of reading. Lockdown has highlighted how much we need human contact, how we thrive when we can talk to others face to face (even if it is via the internet) and ultimately, how important it is to look after ourselves and those around us.
Our Book Club boxes are everything you love about our Classic Tasting Boxes and MORE! They are the ultimate gift experience as not only do you receive a renowned Tasting Box filled with gifts (these are a surprise!), you will also be given exclusive access to attend the online book club meeting for NOVEMBER as well as a Q&As with the author.
The online book club meeting for The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney by Okechukwu Nzelu is on Sunday 29th November. You will be sent an email with the link to the book club discussion during the week leading up to the event.
As part of your 3 month membership you will also receive exclusive discounts from our suppliers. Oh, and it is FREE DELIVERY on all boxes.
Our November theme is : Celebrating Diveristy and showcases a range of amazing UK small businesses.
As Nnenna Maloney approaches womanhood she longs to connect with her Igbo-Nigerian culture. Her once close and tender relationship with her mother, Joanie, becomes strained as Nnenna begins to ask probing questions about her father, who Joanie refuses to discuss.
Nnenna is asking big questions of how to 'be' when she doesn't know the whole of who she is.
Meanwhile, Joanie wonders how to love when she has never truly been loved. Their lives are filled with a cast of characters asking similar questions about identity and belonging whilst grappling with the often hilarious encounters of everyday Manchester.
Okechukwu Nzelu brings us a funny and heart-warming story that covers the expanse of race, gender, class, family and redemption, with a fresh and distinctive new voice. Perfect for fans of Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams and Zadie Smith's White Teeth.
Okechukwu will be speaking to the Book Club on the 29th November as part of our online book club meeting.
Remember- What happens in book club, stays in book club!
