Culture Club
Shame
Date: Monday, 30 May 2022 18:30

Venue: The B-Bar, Barbican Theatre.

Our next book club will be discussing 'Shame' by Jasvinder Sanghera. When she was fourteen, Jasvinder was shown a photo of the man chosen to be her husband. She was terrified. She'd witnessed the torment her sisters endured in their arranged marriages, so she ran away from home, grief-stricken when her parents disowned her. Shame is the heart-rending true story of a young girl's attempt to escape from a cruel, claustrophobic world where family honour mattered more than anything - sometimes more than life itself. Jasvinder's story is one of terrible oppression, a harrowing struggle against a punitive code of honour - and, finally, triumph over adversity. No need to have read the book to join us, but it helps!
 
Let us know if you’d like to join us so we can book a large enough table. 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.
