Haddenham Book Club

The Haddenham Book Club met at the Rising Sun pub on Wednesday 11th March to review their book of the month, namely: 'The Girl with the Louding Voice', by Abi Dare.

Nothing unusual about that, you might think. But on this occasion, their review and discussions were recorded for broadcast on the BBC Radio 2 Book Club (Jo Whiley Show).

The Haddenham group was joined at the Rising Sun by BBC Producer, Joe Haddow, who recorded the whole proceedings for broadcast later this month.

The discussions about the book were lively and everyone had something different to add, reflecting the range of backgrounds and experiences of the club members.

The book is set in Nigeria and is about a 14 year old Nigerian girl named Adunni and her aspirations to get an education, even though she is living in poverty.

You will have to listen to the book club discussions on Radio 2 to find out whether all the book club members liked the book. But it's probably significant that 'The Girl with the Louding Voice' was only book-club book that all its members have finished for a long time!

The Haddenham Book Club's review session will be broadcast on the Jo Whiley Show, on BBC Radio 2 on Monday 23rd March, between 7.30pm — 8.00pm. Be sure to listen!
