Clare Hall Book Club
Join the College’s Book Club as they discuss Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (2001).
Latin terrorists storm an international gathering hosted by an underprivileged country to promote foreign interest and trade, only to find that their intended target, the President, has stayed home to watch his favourite soap opera on TV. Among the hostages are a world-class opera singer and her biggest fan, a Japanese tycoon who has been persuaded to attend the party on the understanding that she will perform half a dozen arias after dinner. Winner of the Orange Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.
All College members are welcome to attend in-person, meeting in Clare Hall’s King Room, or via Zoom.
