For our Feminist Fiction Reading Group's May Meeting, we will be reading and discussing Isabella Hammad's Enter Ghost! Not only is this month's pick shortlisted for the2024 Women's Prize for Fiction, but it is also extremely topical considering the world's political climate.

After years away from her family’s homeland, and reeling from a disastrous love affair, actress Sonia Nasir returns to Haifa to visit her older sister Haneen. On her arrival, she finds her relationship to Palestine is fragile, both bone-deep and new.

When Sonia meets the charismatic Mariam, a local director, she joins a production of Hamlet in the West Bank. Soon, Sonia is rehearsing with a dedicated, if competitive, group of men – yet as opening night draws closer, it becomes clear just how many obstacles stand before the troupe. Amidst it all, the life she once knew starts to give way to the exhilarating possibility of finding a new self in her ancestral home.

Each place costs £5 per ticket, which can be redeemed as a voucher towards a copy of the book. We hope you’ll join us for some great conversation, and a glass of wine on us!
