8pm, 12th February – Blasu / The Seasoning by Manon Steffan Ros

For the first time, we’re offering the chance to read the book of the month in either Welsh or English. We’re excited to have a bilingual discussion and it’d be even better if you can devour both versions of this modern masterpiece.

Peggy is eighty and the family are having a birthday party. Her son’s gift of a beautifully crafted notebook comes with a request. Peggy’s not so keen on telling her own story, but each of her family and neighbours has a story to tell, revealing not just Peggy’s life but that of her village, tucked beneath Cader Idris on the southern fringes of Snowdownia.
