Location: The King Room, Main Site, Clare Hall, Herschel Road, Cambridge CB3 9AL (and via Zoom)
Join the College’s Book Club as they discuss The Beginning of Spring (1988) by British author Penelope Fitzgerald.

‘To me the book is the essence of why I love novels and wanted to be a writer. I am drawn deep into another world and emerge stronger, happier, surer that humankind is full of wonder and mystery as well as despair, treachery and foolishness.’ – Katharine McMahon, The Independent
