About the event
MA Book Club is the perfect chance to dive into discussion about some of the most contemporary and diverse literature out today. It's incredibly casual, a couple of hours once a month to chat, meet new people, have a glass of wine and read some great new books.
You can opt in, and opt out, each month - we will announce each month's title the month before, and you can buy your spot when it comes up on the website. Each month is £15, which includes your copy of the book AND your first drink completely free on the night. You can pop in and buy your book directly from the shop, or we can deliver.
If you would like you book copy delivered, please let us know by popping us an email at email@example.com.
If you would like your book collected from the shop, you don't need to do anything, your book will be available to pick up anytime from the following day.
THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF THE ALPERTON ANGELS
An incredibly well-written, fast paced and deliciously devouring mystery that allows us a bit of relief following a few rather intense novels. It is the perfect Autumnal read... and as book club falls on halloween we will celebrating with some spooky treats - but obvz, most importantly, lots of wine.
ABOUT THE BOOK
True-crime author Amanda Bailey knows all about the notorious Alperton Angels cult. There have been dozens of books and films about the Angels, ever since the night nearly two decades ago, when they attempted to sacrifice a baby they believed to be the Antichrist.
With all the cultists now dead - apart from their charismatic leader - it seems like there's nothing new to say about the Angels... until now. The Alperton baby has turned eighteen and can finally be interviewed, and if Amanda can track them down, it will be the scoop of the year.
But rival author Oliver Menzies is just as smart, better connected, and is also on the baby's trail. As Amanda and Oliver are forced to collaborate, they realise that what everyone thinks they know about the Angels is wrong. The truth is something much darker and stranger.
And the devilish story of the Alperton Angels is far from over...
