Édouard Louis grew up in a village in northern France where many live below the poverty line. His bestselling debut novel about life there, The End of Eddy, has sparked debate on social inequality, sexuality and violence. It is an extraordinary portrait of escaping from an unbearable childhood, inspired by the author’s own. Written with an openness and compassionate intelligence, ultimately, it asks, how can we create our own freedom?

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.
