About the Event

FURTHER CHANGE 

Please ignote TBA, we are now meeting at Jackie's house, the full address will be on the email reminder sent out one day prior to the event.

This month we are discussing The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera

The birth of a daughter - Kahu - breaks the lineage of a Maori tribe. When she is rejected by her grandfather, Kahu develops the ability to communicate with whales, echoing those of the ancient Whale Rider after whom she was named.

This magical and mythical novel tells of the conflict between tradition and heritage, and of Kahu's destiny to secure the tribe's future.

We have chosen this book from the Big Jubilee Read list, celebrating books from around the world from each decade of the Queen’s reign.

You can find more information about the books on the reading list on their website https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4RNfHvd2sxNlHDFFqzTGVKc/the-big-jubilee-read-2012-2022
