      This year, the Women's Prize for Fiction turns 25! Westarted this book groupalmost two years ago with Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie, the 2018 winner. To celebrate, we are renaming our group and changing ourselections to include some winners from the past 25 years. This month we'll discuss The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht.A tiger escapes from the local zoo, padding through the ruined streets and onwards, to a ridge above the Balkan village of Galina. His nocturnal visits hold the villagers in a terrified thrall - but for one boy, the tiger is a thing of magic.Natalia is the granddaughter of that boy. Now a doctor, she is visiting orphanages in the war-torn Balkans when she receives word of her beloved grandfather's death, far from their home, in circumstances shrouded in mystery.Compelled to unravel the truth, Natalia stumbles upon a clue that will lead her to a tattered copy of The Jungle Book, and then to the most extraordinary story her grandfather never told her - the legend of the tiger's wife.If you'd like to join us, we'll meet on Wednesday19th Augustat 6pm in our Fiction section on the 1st floor. It's free to come along.Please email if you need more information!
