Night Owl Book Club - If on a Winter's Night a Traveller
Join us for the first of our Night Owl book club events for If on a Winter's Night a Traveller, on Thursday, 8th September, at 8pm.
We'll be meeting in a small group to discuss Italo Calvino's intriguing Italian classic, first published in 1979.
Tickets include a copy of the book (RRP £9.99), plus a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee (decaff available!) to enjoy as we talk about the book!
Select 'local collection' to pick up your copy from Night Owl. Alternatively please select a Royal Mail option, and I'll arrange for a copy to be shipped straight to you.
About the book:
You go into a bookshop and buy If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. You like it. But alas there is a printer's error in your copy.
You take it back to the shop and get a replacement. But the replacement seems to be a totally different story. You try to track down the original book you were reading but end up with a different narrative again.
This remarkable novel leads you through many different books including a detective adventure, a romance, a satire, an erotic story, a diary and a quest. But the real hero is you, the reader.
Softcover, 272 pages.
- I already have a copy of If on a Winter's Night a Traveller- is it possible to get a ticket without the book?
No problem! Please let me know by writing a note when adding the ticket to your cart (click 'Add a note to your order', and write a message in the box before checking out). You'll receive a credit of £9.99 to spend on another book of your choice at Night Owl, or if you purchased your copy directly from Night Owl, please mention this in the note and I'll refund the price of the ticket for you.
- Where will we be meeting?
The event will be held at Night Owl Books, 1 Bridge Street, East Linton, EH40 3AG.
- We'd like to attend as a couple and share a copy of the book - is that possible?
Of course! Please let me know by writing a note when adding the ticket to your cart, and you can pick up one copy of the book from Night Owl and receive a credit of £9.99 to spend on another book/gift of your choice.
A note on Covid precautions: if you can, please take a lateral before attending, and if you feel unwell on the day, please err on the side of caution. We will aim for the event to be fully in-person but will be as flexible as possible will hybrid arrangements if needed.
