Poetry performance - Sandra Sarala - September 21st - 5p.m

Sandra Sarala is a singing performance poet, journalist, bookmaker, copy editor, permaculturist, and actor, with a sideline in archaic East European folk song. She left Aotearoa-New Zealand mid-1997, shortly after working with Alan Brunton and Sally Rodwell's Red Mole's Roadworks theatre company in Wellington.

She traveled all over the world and is currently touring in France and Italy for her first Permaterrailean tour.

Her work speaks to our times and the human condition with all variety of read, spoken and sung words, occasionally seasoned with archaic east European village song.

Book of the month

"Swing Time"

by Zadie Smith

 

LONG LISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017 

 

Two brown girls dream of being dancers--but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, about what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.

Next Book Club

September 16th at 2pm

"Americanah" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

 

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.
