CLASSIC BOOK CLUB: Cannery Row – John Steinbeck

Wednesday 31st March, 6:30pm via Zoom

‘Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream’. Meet the gamblers, whores, drunks, bums and artists of Cannery Row in Monterey, California, during the Great Depression. They want to throw a party for their friend Doc, so Mack and the boys set about, in their own inimitable way, recruiting everyone in the neighbourhood to the cause. But along the way they can’t help but get involved in a little mischief and misadventure.

It wouldn’t be Cannery Row if it was otherwise, now would it?

The discussion will be led by Elizabeth Griffiths

One Tree Cafe

From small beginnings in 2000, the Cafe at One Tree Books continues to flourish by offering a wide selection of locally sourced and prepared dishes for you to enjoy. We have lots of delicious treats in store, from freshly baked pastries, granola and yogurt or bacon sandwiches for breakfast; soup of the day and a selection of quiches and salads for lunch and a wide selection of home-made cakes. Locally roasted coffee, tea and hot chocolate are always available with a choice of a variety of milk to suit everyone's taste. The cafe also is home to our exhibiting artist of the month and the walls are always full of stunning visual images. Find out more about our artists here: 

Book Doctor

An appointment with our book doctor makes a great gift - for a birthday or a wedding, or just to treat yourself or a friend.  Our personal service begins with a consultation usually lasting 30 minutes or so which includes coffee and a welcome pack, discussing your reading tastes and getting an idea of what you love most about books. We then send out a monthly book choice to any address in the UK (other destinations available on request).

Prices start at £60 for 6 months, or £120 for 12 months.
