Radical Book Club April

21 April @ 6:00 pm

book club april 2024

The April book choice will be “Homegoing”, by Yaa Gyasi. We will be hosting a group discussion at 6pm on Sunday the 21st of April at The Hope and Anchor.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

The night Effia Otcha was born into the musky heat of Fanteland, a fire raged through her father’s compound. It moved quickly, tearing a path for days. It lived off the air; it slept in caves and hid in trees; it burned, up and through, unconcerned with what wreckage it left behind, until it reached an Asante village. There, it disappeared, becoming one with the night. Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader’s wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow.

As each chapter offers up a new descendant, alternating between Effia’s and Esi’s bloodline right up to the present day, a chasm of experience and the differing legacies of chance are brought starkly to light. Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi; from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel – the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and through their lives the very story of America itself.

We’re looking forward to reading this one, and hope that you join us in April.

Hoad Monument Open

21 April @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hoad Monument with flags flying

The Sir John Barrow Monument, known as the Hoad Monument, is normally open on Sunday afternoons between Easter Sunday and the end of October. It is also open on Bank Holidays, and on other occasions by arrangement. The flag flies at the top of Hoad Hill when the monument is open. You can climb up to a gallery level, or all the way up to the top, but be aware that the stone stairway is steep and narrow. It is currently free to visit, but a donation towards its upkeep would be appreciated. Hot and cold drinks and a few snacks are available for purchase during opening hours.
