The Left Book Club – Peterborough Reading Group

Opening: 26/04/22 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM | Free

Metal is excited to host a brand new reading group in partnership with the Left Book Club. The Left Book Club is a not-for-profit subscription book club. It’s an affordable way to get a carefully-chosen list of the best books that explore world-changing ideas, direct to your door every month. Every book is printed in a unique edition and you can choose between 6 or 12 books a year. Previous titles include ‘Ain’t I A Woman’ by bell hooks, ‘Bread and Roses’ by Andrea D’Atri, ‘Respectable: Crossing the Class Divide’ by Lynsey Hanley and many more.

The reading group is a quarterly meet up to discuss the themes of a book released by the Left Book Club

For our first session, the book we will be looking at is ‘In and Against The State: Discussion notes for Socialists’ by the London Edinburgh Weekend Return Group.

You can get a copy of the book by subscribing to the Left Book Club, where you can get your first month for free! Follow the link www.leftbookclub.com/member and use the code LBCMetal at checkout to receive this discount.

Metal also has a few copies of the book that can be loaned out, please get in touch and we’d be happy to share these with you.

Don’t worry if you’ve not read the whole book, we will be using the book as a launch pad to discuss the general themes explored such as class, identity politics and socialism.

The reading group is free to attend and open to all, whether this is your first time discovering about the Left Book Club, or you’ve been an avid subscriber for many years. This is a chance to make new friends, gain new perspectives and step outside your comfort zone.
