Book Group – Anatomy of a Soldier by Harry Parker

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Book Group

meets in the Church 12 noon – 2pm, usually 4th Sunday of the month

Please contact Ann Cornick (020 8977 2536, anncornick@hotmail.co.uk) for more information Sunday 25 February: Anatomy of a Soldier by Harry Parker At the centre is the story of Captain Tom Barnes, injured by an exploding IED, and of the doctors and family who help him. But also there are the parallel stories of an insurgent, of a father, and of teenagers caught up in the violence of war. This is sensitively told in a shifting series of narratives from the perspective of 45 inanimate objects: from a boot, to a watch, to a bag of fertilizer.

If you are interested please come along with a copy of the book (and a sandwich if you want or buy something in the cafe). We welcome people who cannot come each month or who haven’t finished the book! Books are available from Church Times bookshop (email: bookshop@chbookshop.co.uk) and further information is available on www.churchtimes.co.uk
