Contemporary Fiction Book Club #1: Lucy by the Sea, Elizabeth Strout

February 12, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Come down on Sunday 12th February for the first of our recurring monthly contemporary fiction book clubs at Books on the Rise. We’re reading Lucy by the Sea by Elizabeth Strout…

After a few responses the book with the most votes is Lucy by the Sea, by Elizabeth Strout. The Pulitzer-winning writer’s latest novel deals with isolation, the politics of personal and collective grief, and familial relationships, set during the lockdown years of 2020-2021. It was one of our favourite new releases of last year and we are so looking forward to an exciting discussion about it with you all!

To sign up, email us at, with ‘contemporary fiction book club’ in your subject line. There is no charge for joining the club, but we ask that you buy your copy of the book through the shop. We would give a 20% discount to book club members on the books for the club.
