October's Reading Power Book Club: Lemony Snicket's Who Could That Be At This Hour?
We are very pleased to announce that October 2014’s Reading Power Book Club selection, as suggested by Sprout Editorial Group member SamuelPatterson, is Who Could That Be At This Hour? by Lemony Snicket.
It will also be the first book to be discussed at the brand-new Reading Power Book Club meeting, which will happen in Cardiff Central Library on Saturday 8th November 2014 and to which you are all invited! More details to follow in another article on theSprout but keep that date free.
Who Could That Be At This Hour? is the first novel in the All The Wrong Questions series, which is set before the events of A Series Of Unfortunate Events.
So what's this all about then? Here's the blurb...
In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organisation nobody knows about. He began asking questions that shouldn’t have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn’t be read. This is the first volume.
So expect to dive into the gothic darkness of Lemony Snicket's murky but humorous world. If you still not sure, then click here to can read an excerpt from the book.
You don't have to buy the book to take part in the club, just take a trip to your local library and borrow one for free (and we've been promised there's plenty of copies available).
