NEPM Book Club: 'Swing Time'

The NEPM Book Club: "Swing Time" by Zadie Smith. Read with us! Jan. 26, 2023 at 7 p.m. Sponsored by Broadside Bookshop.

Do you love to read? So do we! That’s why we’ve launched the NEPM Book Club — a new quarterly meet-up dedicated to bringing NEPM friends together to chat about new, diverse and interesting fiction.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. We're kicking off the new year by talking about Swing Time by Zadie Smith.

An ambitious, exuberant novel moving from North West London to West Africa, from the multi-award-winning author of White Teeth and On Beauty.

Two brown girls dream of being dancers—but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.
