July 2017 – The Submission by Amy Waldman

A jury gathers in Manhattan to select a memorial for the victims of a devastating terrorist attack. Their fraught deliberations complete, the jurors open the envelope containing the anonymous winner’s name – and discover he is an American Muslim. Instantly they are cast into roiling debate about the claims of grief, the ambiguities of art, and the meaning of Islam. 

For local Book Groups we offer a 10% discount when 5 or more copies of the same book are purchased.

Corn Exchange Crickhowell Ltd (CECLtd) Managing Director, Dean Christy, said: “To be judged one of the four best High Streets in Wales is something to be immensely proud of.
