Dr Koel Chatterjee to launch ‘The Shakespeare Fiction Book Club’
BSA member Dr Koel Chatterjee shares with us details of her upcoming launch of a new online book club.
The idea for the Shakespeare Fiction Book Club grew out of my research for my Shakespeare Fiction Podcast (to be launched later this autumn). In my research, I came across some great Shakespeare Fiction in novelised form and decided that this could be the start of an amazing book club! The book club will run once a month over Zoom on the last Wednesday of every month starting on October the 27th at 17:30 (BST) with the book These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong (NPR review). The platform I’ll be using to coordinate is the Bookclubz app which is free and quite user-friendly. Some of the other books we will be reading are Miranda and Caliban by Jaqueline Carey, Iron Queen by Anna Stuart, and Gertrude and Claudius by John Updike.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please join at https://bookclubz.com/clubs/39749/join/6d3df2/ and I look forward to seeing you there!
