Book Club Live: The Novels that shaped our World - West Bridgford Library

West Bridgford Library, Nottingham

Venue West Bridgford Library

BBC Arts will mark the 300th anniversary of the English Language novel with a year-long festival celebrating the artform. As part of the novels that shaped our World festival, BBC Radio 2’s Book Club have revealed a list of 100 novels their panelists feel have had an impact over the centuries.

Join us as we bring our own panel of writers and other bookish types together for lively discussion about ‘the List’ for this book Club Live special event. Expect forthright opinion and much good-humoured jousting as they take issue with the choices, offer alternative versions and champion their own favourite novels. And of course, there will be opportunities for our audience to offer their own thoughts too.

Tickets: £6
