Join in with next week’s Nosy Crow Reading Group

The first Nosy Crow Reading Group of 2015 is taking place next week – and we’d love for you to join in!

We’ll be meeting to discuss the The Imaginary, written by A.F. Harrold and illustrated by Emily Gravett, which The Guardian described as “beautiful and strange […] about imagination, love, loss, new starts and old endings”.

As usual, we’ve prepared a few questions in advance to get everyone thinking – here’s some of what we might be talking about:

1. How well do you think the illustrations in The Imaginary interact with the text?

2. Do you think this is a book that places ideas above “plot”? What is it really about?

3. Who do you think The Imaginary is for? Is this a book whose ideas rely on an adult perspective? How do you think children and parents will read it differently?

We’ll be meeting on Tuesday, January 20 at 6.30pm, here at the Nosy Crow offices – 10a Lant Street, London, SE1 1QR. There are still some places if you’d like to join us – if so, send an email to tom at nosycrow dot com. And if you can’t make it here, but would still like to take part, please do join in online, either on Twitter with the #NCGKids hashtag, or in the comments section of this post.

We hope you can join us!
