Book Club - Pandaemonium

Culture Club
Date: Monday, 18 September 2017 18:30

Venue: The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre

Update: Please note we are now starting the book club 30 minutes earlier at 18:30 so we can have a Skype call with Christopher Brookmyre. We're really pleased that Christopher has agreed to spare some of his time to chat to us. We'll be in the small mezzanine area above the entrance.  Feel free to join us at 19:00 as normal, for the main part of the club, if you prefer

September’s Book Club will be discussing Christopher Brookmyre’s novel ‘Pandaemonium’. Here’s the blurb:

"The senior pupils of St Peter's High School are on retreat to a secluded outdoor activity centre, coming to terms with the murder of a fellow pupil through the means you would expect: counselling, contemplation, candid discussion and even prayer - not to mention booze, drugs, clandestine liaisons and as much partying as they can get away with.

Not so far away, the commanders of a top-secret military experiment, long-since spiralled out of control, fear they may have literally unleashed the forces of Hell.

Two very different worlds are on a collision course, and will clash in an earthly battle between science and the supernatural, philosophy and faith, civilisation and savagery."

Brookmyre was Humanist Society Scotland’s President from April 2008 to December 2015, and is now one of its distinguished supporters.

If you’ve not been to one of our book clubs before, we’ll have at least one copy of the book on our table to help you find us.
