Pageturners May Discussion

Pageturners had lots to talk about when discussing Tim Winton’s Number 1 best-selling novel The Shepherd’s Hut this month. Pageturners rated the book mostly 4 out of 5 stars with a 2 and a 3 in the mix.

Words such as compelling, evocative, character-centred, complex, thought-provoking, bittersweet, bleak, small-town, austere, stark, thoughtful, uncomfortable and powerful were used to describe the book.

For more about the discussion and interviews with the author go to the pageturners blog.

The next book for discussion is Macbeth by Jo Nesbo – part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series where writers are asked to reimagine a Shakespeare tale – on Wednesday 13 June at Orange City Library at 5.30pm.
