Catch-Up Book Club: Final Curtain

22 September 2020 5:30pm

The Catch-Up Book Club is an informal group we run in partnership with the Department of English and Linguistics. A University of Otago lecturer, or other uniquely qualified person, talks about a classic you’ve heard about, read long ago, loved the film(s) or TV adaption(s), or have always meant to read; with questions and observations from the group … everyone is welcome, even those who actually aren’t going to read the book but would like to know more!

5.30pm for 6pm start: Join us at the bookshop on the Tuesdays below, from 5.30pm, for tea, coffee and treats; with a 6.00pm start for the talk, followed by bookish chat with fellow booklovers.
FREE! Seats are limited, and really popular, so please RSVP for each session: 03 477 6976 |

Final Curtain by Ngaio Marsh, with Dr Vanda Symon
Dr Symon, trained as a pharmacist and now a best-selling crime writer, investigates the possible/probable links between the poison featured in Marsh’s 1947 crime novel and a real life case with disturbing similarities – inspiration, copycat or coincidence?
