On Wednesday night, members of Poppy Loves Book Club gathered in their local groups all over the world to join in the conversation.
Last month we read The Taxidermist’s Daughter by Kate Mosse.
Kate joined us in Notting Hill for our discussions, and hundreds of Poppy Loves Book Club members joined in online on Facebook from all over the world….
We had decorated our space with props and themes from the book, and all the different book groups that joined in had done the same… including one of our newest book clubs in Niagara Falls, NY!
Kate Mosse kicked off the evening with a reading from her book, which we all watched from our sofas, cafes, bars and homes… all over the world…
And then we were off – we talked and laughed and chatted and discussed… and Kate Mosse answered members’ questions live during the night…
Miss Magpie Fashion Spy was with us as well, live illustrating the event and capturing as many little magical moments as she could…
This amazing crow is from London Taxidermy – they regularly hire their amazing animals out to the film and TV industry, so you will probably have seen some them in the films Paddington, Spectre and Kingsman… and they also made an appearance in Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge and Celebrity Juice! And now, Poppy Loves Book Club!
The owner Alexis Turner has even written a book called Taxidermy, published by Thames and Hudson, so if you’re interested in knowing more about this incredible craft – make this your first port of call.
And then Miss Magpie revealed her amazing artwork… and it WAS AMAZING!!
The evening was just wonderful and I was thrilled that so many Poppy Loves Book Club members joined in from all corners of our planet.
What a thing. It’s so exciting.
I have now announced this month’s book and you can find out all about this and everything else about joining and starting your own Poppy loves Book Club over here – www.poppylovesbookclub.com.
A huge thank you to Kate Mosse for joining us on Wednesday – we absolutely loved having you.
See you all at book club next month!
