Join us as the last General Book Club of 2017 discusses the humorous novella The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett.

Thanks to her straying corgis, Her Majesty the Queen discovers a traveling library van parked outside a kitchen door at Buckingham Palace. Thus begins the Queen’s obsession with reading. With the guidance of the young kitchen worker, Norman Seakins, the Queen finds herself devouring works from a range of authors. It is not long before the Queen develops a new perspective on the world– alarming to both her staff and family.

Copies of the book are available in the Adult Services department.
