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 17th September and we will be discussing Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

Amazon says:

When a new-born baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.

Praise for Small Great Things:'No book could be more timely in its message than Small Great Things . . . The story prodded me to take a good, hard look at my own biases and preconceptions' (Metro)'

A thought-provoking and unputdownable novel about race and prejudice that shows Picoult at her very best' (Woman & Home)

'The narrative rips along at a great pace, she writes dialogue like a pro, and her suspenseful control of the courtroom scenes is masterfully done' (Independent)
