      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

You may want to read The Moor's Account by Laila Lalami.  It is a historical fiction but a story based on upon an incredible true story of survival.   Out of several hundred explorers of the 1527 Narvaez expedition of the American gulf coast, only four survived and found their way to Mexico after several years of walking across thousands of miles of wilderness. It is told through the eyes of a Moorish slave, based on the written accounts of Cabeza de Vaca, both among the four survivors.
