Talking About Books
4.00pm Tuesday 28 November
month, our contribution is appropriately “Balfour Declaration” related!
The book choice is The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild,
daughter of Jacob the 4th Baron Rothschild, and great-great niece of
Walter, the Declaration’s recipient. Hannah is the Chairman of Trustees
of London’s National Gallery and grew up partly amidst the splendor and
beauty of the Rothschilds’ sumptuous estate, Waddesdon Manor.

This wonderfully funny whodunit is a hilarious
romp through the rarefied London art scene –
poking fun at the super-rich and famous who

Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction.
As with all our book choices, a copy is
available from the Gura Family Memorial Library but you might also enjoy
reading it on your iPad or Kindle.
Judy Frankel leads our Talking about Books
group and you’re welcome to come whether or not you’ve read the book.
There is no book club membership but please let us know if you would
like to be on the Talking about Books mailing list.
