In June we will be reading Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi.
Perdita Lee may appear your average British schoolgirl; Harriet Lee may seem just a working mother trying to penetrate the school social hierarchy; but there are signs that they might not be as normal as they think they are. For one thing, they share a gold-painted, seventh-floor walk-up apartment with some surprisingly verbal vegetation. And then there’s the gingerbread they bake. Londoners may find themselves able to take or leave it, but it’s very popular in Druhastrana, the faraway (maybe nonexistent) land of Harriet’s youth. Many twists, turns, and mysteries along the way as we follow the Lee’s on their journey.
Purchase of the book from the shop is not required, but we do have copies available.
