What could be better than getting togther with like minded folk to discuss books whilst eating incredible food? Not much, surely? Which is why our Mowgli Book Club meetings are SO popular. Places are strictly limited and go incredibly fast. Ticket price includes a choice of special Book Club tiffin box meal. Please note — tickets for these meetings are only available on line.

This month we will be discussing Naomi Alderman's astonishing book «The Power» — winner of this year's Bailey's Wome's Prize For Fiction

What if the power to hurt were in women's hands?

Imagine a world where teenage girls awake one morning with extraordinary physical strength and power that outstrips their male counterparts. Thanks to a newly acquired section of muscle near their collarbone, young women can now conduct electricity like electric eels: inflicting pain or electrocuting to death as they wish. They can even waken this power in older women too. In Naomi Alderman’s The Power, the balance of the world is irrevocably altered overnight.

Exploring the concepts of gender, hierarchy and power, The Power is an ingenious and masterfully crafted piece of feminist science fiction as well as a searing indictment of our contemporary world.
