About the novel

Come read (or re-read) and discuss the first book of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy before it’s made into a miniseries by the BBC! Although, The Golden Compass is a young adult book, it touches upon adult themes and questions that affect our world, and should lead to an interesting discussion. Hope you can join us! The discussion will start a few minutes after 18:00, the flow of conversation is much easier if we try to arrive on time:) Thank you!

Questions, doubts, lost? Feel free to message me or call/wsp: + 34 66 88 533 20

Read on for a brief intro to the book, if desired:

The Golden Compass (also known by the original title Northern Lights) is the story of memorable, literary character Lyra Belacqua. Lyra has grown up an orphan in her world’s version of Oxford, England. Her life is carefree, fun and predictable until rumors of children disappearing from the streets of Oxford start surfacing and Lyra is sent to live with the charming Mrs. Coulter. From there Lyra starts to discover a world she may not be ready for of Dust, knowledge, the GOB, the authority, betrayal and… okay, that’s enough, no more spoilers, just read the book!
