Digital Book Club: May 2024

This month’s Digital Book Club title is The Colony by Audrey Magee.

Mr Lloyd and Mr Masson are spending the summer on the island. Both will strive to encapsulate the truth of this place - one in his paintings, the other by capturing its speech, the language he hopes to preserve.

But the people who live on this rock have their own views on what is being recorded, what is being taken and what is given in return. Soft summer days pass, and the islanders are forced to question what they value and what they desire. As the autumn beckons, and the visitors head home, there will be a reckoning.

The Colony is available on BorrowBox as an eBook and eAudiobook with no waiting.
