Book Club: Judith LucyFri 6 Sep, 6pm
SLV, North Rotunda
It is perhaps slightly off-brand, but comedian Judith Lucy insists that Cormac McCarthy’s 1985 classic ‘anti-Western’ Blood Meridian is the novel she wishes to examine. Prepare for ‘vistas of gruesome violence’ as you dig deep into this historical tale.
It is recommended you read the featured book before attending this event. You can purchase a copy from Readings, our official bookseller, here.
