Footlights Book Club, run in conjunction with Conwy Library Service, is held on the first Friday of each month, from 12noon, at Catlin’s Café Bar. We focus on novels which have been adapted for cinema, TV and the stage.
Our July book is the satire ‘Where’d ’You Go Bernadette’ by Maria Semple, which will soon be on the big screen in a new film starring Cate Blanchett.
Bernadette is a former cutting edge designer, who became a recluse after an incident with a neighbour. Living in Seattle with her husband and daughter, she rants against the world. Her husband is worried about her, her daughter Bee wants them all to go on a long-haul trip together. Then Bernadette vanishes – and Bee must travel to the end of the earth to find her.
We’ll be discussing this book on Friday, 5 July. Borrow the book from a Conwy county library and make sure you have read it before then! You can access copies from the Venue Cymru reading group collection.
