Summer of Spies: Classic Spy Fiction Book Club #3
Tuesday 15th August 18:30 - 19:30 at London - Gower Street
Waterstones Gower Street presents Summer of Spies: join us in July and August as we celebrate the very best spy fiction with with quizzes, cocktail parties, book clubs and much more!
Throughout SUMMER OF SPIES, Telegraph crime & thriller critic Jake Kerridge, will be hosting a CLASSIC SPY FICTION BOOK CLUB in store. Join us for a glass of wine or two and laid-back, fun conversation about some of the spy genre’s best loved titles.
For our book club on August 15th, we will be discussing Elizabeth Bowen’s 1948 thriller The Heat of the Day. Stella Rodney is one of those who has chosen to remain in London during the bombing raids of WW2. But for her, the sense of impending catastrophe becomes acutely personal when she discovers that her lover, Robert, is suspected of selling secrets to the enemy, and that the man who is following him wants Stella herself as the price of his silence.
Book club tickets are £3 and include wine. Book online, in-store or by calling 020 7636 1577.
