This month’s pick

For our March selection, the LPW Book Club is going to be reading Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams.

Why did we pick this?

Tennessee is Williams is one of the most revered American playwrights, and it’s easy to see why Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is up there with his most famous plays. The play tackles big, universal themes from family to deceit to desire – and despite being written in 1955, it still feels relevant today.

Set in Mississippi, Williams encapsulates the atmosphere of the 1950’s South perfectly – the razor sharp dialogue and vibrant characters will have you not wanting to put this one down!

How does it work?

All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.

When does it start?

Discussion will start on 4 April 2018 at 7.30pm. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished the play by then, we’ll be starting at the beginning with our discussion, so there will still be a lot that you can get out of it.

However, we can’t be held liable for any spoilers, so if this is something that will bother you, probably best to finish the play before the book club starts.

Please note, the date of this month’s book club is slightly later than usual due to the Easter break, we hope this will give you plenty of time to read to play and discuss it with us on 4 April, but we will be leaving the discussion open afterwards if there are any questions or topics you want to explore after this date.
