Hurricane Book Club

Shetland Library takes part in the Hurricane Book Club, a reading group which happens in libraries across Scotland and online via Twitter. The online element of the group allows readers from more remote and rural locations to get involved in the discussion. In June, the group concluded this season by discussing ‘Blood & Sugar’ by Laura Shepherd-Robinson, with a Zoom chat featuring the author and readers from Falkirk, Glasgow and Shetland.

Here are some of the previous titles the group has read:

‘Burial Rites’ by Hannah Kent
‘The End We Start From’ by Megan Hunter
‘The Doll Factory’ by Elizabeth Macneal
‘The Other Bennet Sister’ by Janice Hadlow ‘The Animals at Lockwood Manor’ by Jane Healey

These titles are all available to borrow from the library.

Hurricane Book Club will be back in November 2020. For more information about the group, please contact
