It’s the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War this year and so we thought we’d get in early by reading a classic from that time. All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque is unusual amongst the other famous WWI literature (in this country), in that it is written by a German and, of course, was made into a film. However, it does have some key similarities in that it portrays the experiences of ordinary soldiers and the terrible toll that the futility of war had on their lives.
We’ll be meeting at 7.30pm on the 20th of February. Tea and coffee will be provided but you fancy something a little stronger please bring your own.
We don’t require any commitment so if you don’t fancy this book or you’re not available this month you can always come next time.
Questions and suggestions for our next book are always welcome.
