      Joinus on the 14th of November as wecelebratePhilip Pullman's new novel with an informal discussion ofThe Secret Commonwealth, second in The Book of Dust series.In 2017, PhilipPullman almost teasingly referred to the new sequence of novels as an equel, rather than anything so conventional as a sequel. Set in the world so masterfully established by Philip Pullman in his trilogyHis Dark Materials,La Belle Sauvageis a story of survival, secrets, intrigue and vengeance, exploring the beginning of Lyra's story.In The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two, we finally begin to understand the full meaning of his intent, the upcoming book picking up the climactic strands of The Amber Spyglass, seven years on,whilst simultaneously drawing on the stage set by La Belle Sauvage, twenty years earlier.Join us for an informal discussion of The Secret Commonwealth, we can't wait to talk to everyone else who loves this world as much as we do!Refreshments will be provided.
