Book Group

Thursday 14 July, 6:30pm

We will be reading The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante.

Elena Ferrante‘s The Story of a New Name is the second chapter in the extraordinary Neapolitan series, following 2012’s acclaimed My Brilliant Friend, featuring the two friends Lila and Elena growing up in Naples in the early 1960s.  The two protagonists are now in their twenties. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila. Meanwhile, Elena continues her journey of self-discovery.
