As I mentioned last week, I’m currently on a three week residential work related course. When I was initially given the course dates and realised the book club would fall within that time period I believed I could still run the online meeting from my room as usual.
Having spent my first week there and now realised the intensity of the course and the amount of work that is required in an evening, I have come to the decision that I just won’t be able to conduct this months meeting as previously arranged on Wednesday 16th October, so I’m rearranging it for Sunday 20th October at the same time of 8 p.m. GMT. This change is for October only and meetings will revert to Wednesdays after that – unless Sundays turn out to be a better day for people to attend and I’ll address that if it’s the case.
So, in view of that, if you haven’t yet started reading this months read, because you couldn’t make the Wednesday night, you still have time to get the book and read it before the club meeting on Sunday! I haven’t had chance to start it yet and will be doing so today.
Half Inuit, half outsider, Edie Kiglatuk is the best guide in her corner of the Arctic, but as a woman she gets only grudging respect from the elders of her isolated community on Ellesmere Island. When a man is shot and killed while on an ”authentic” Arctic adventure under her watch, the murder attracts police sergeant Derek Palliser’s attention. As Edie sets out to discover what those tourists were really after, she’s shocked by the suicide of someone close to her. The events seem unrelated, but Edie’s Inuit hunter sensibility tells her otherwise. With or without Derek’s help, she’s determined to find the connection–a search that takes her beyond her village and into the far reaches of the tundra.”White Heat” is a stunning debut novel set in an utterly foreign culture amid an unforgiving landscape of ice and rock, of spirit ancestors and never-rotting bones. ‘White Heat’ is a stunning debut novel, a suspense-filled adventure story that will captivate fans of Henning Mankell.
Due to the short notice change, I’d really appreciate any shares of this post you are able to make.
Many thanks. See you soon!
