Due to the popularity of the “Thursdays with Thursday” book club on The Man Who was Thursday, which begins next week, we’ve decided to offer another five-week book club, which we’re calling “Revisiting Brideshead” in which I’ll be leading a discussion of Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel, Brideshead Revisited.

- In the first of three poems that I’ll be discussing and reading to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War in Europe (VE Day) and also the forthcoming Memorial Day, the Poem of the Week is “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
