The Buns & Roses Book Club formed in 2010 and is open to everyone who enjoys a good read.

The group meets about once every two months on a Sunday afternoon at the Corner Cafe at Leeds City Museum from 2.30pm.  Books are chosen at least a month in advance to give you plenty of time to get a copy and get stuck in, however we don't mind if you haven't had chance to finish the book!

We are a very friendly book club - open to partners and friends of WI members and we don't mind if you haven't finished the book, only seen a film version of it or just read a Wikipedia entry about it - come along and share your opinions or listen to those of others with the opportunity of sampling the delightful wares of the Museum Cafe should you feel like it.

Our next meeting is on Sunday 16th July and we will be discussing The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

Amazon says:

Stan and Charmaine are a married couple trying to stay afloat in the midst of economic and social collapse. Living in their car, surviving on tips from Charmaine's job at a dive bar, they're increasingly vulnerable to roving gangs and in a rather desperate state. So when they see an advertisement for the Positron Project in the town of Consilience - a 'social experiment' offering stable jobs and a home of their own - they sign up immediately. All they have to do in return for this suburban paradise is give up their freedom every second month, swapping their home for a prison cell.

At first, all is well. But slowly, unknown to the other, Stan and Charmaine develop a passionate obsession with their counterparts, the couple that occupy their home when they are in prison. Soon the pressures of conformity, mistrust, guilt and sexual desire take over, and Positron looks less like a prayer answered and more like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.
