Bee Sober Book Club - The Authenticity Project

Date: December 20th, 2021

Region: Manchester

Event Details:

Join us for the last book club of the year, and a cosy get together just before Christmas!

For our December book club, we've picked The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley. Clare was a guest at our October meeting and was just brilliant.


About the book:

Six strangers with one thing in common: their lives aren't always what they make them out to be.

What would happen if they told the truth instead?

Julian Jessop is tired of hiding the deep loneliness he feels. So he begins The Authenticity Project - a small green notebook containing the truth about his life.

Leaving the notebook on a table in his friendly neighbourhood café, Julian never expects Monica, the owner, to track him down after finding it. Or that she'll be inspired to write down her own story.

Little do they realize that such small acts of honesty hold the power to impact all those who discover the notebook and change their lives completely.


The Authenticity Project has been described as a "warm, poignant and uplifting New York Times bestseller and Radio 2 Book Club pick, loved by readers."

We think it is a big hug of a book and a perfect way to round off the year.

The Bee Sober Book Club is on the third Monday of every month at 7.30pm. Members can access via the member link, or you can book as a non-member through the link here. It's free but there is an option to donate - all donations to Bee Sober CIC go into the work done with rehabilitation centres, schools and the community.
