A Turkish literary phenomenon, Women Who Blow on Knots is an engaging, funny and fast-paced book about four women hitting the road during the Arab Spring.

Unique and controversial in its country of origin for its political rhetoric and atypical Muslim female characters, Ece Temelkuran weaves an empowering tale that challenges us to ponder not only the social questions of politics, religion and women in the Middle East, but also the universal bonds of sister- and motherhood.

Our reading group is a lovely, relaxed and dynamic mix of friendly people who all love reading. Whether you are a casual reader or a voracious consumer of literature, you are more than welcome to join us. There will be wine, a plethora of nibbles and great conversation.
