Justice Malala: The Troyeville Hotel Book Club is “Gorgeous and Amazing and Wonderful”

Let Them Eat CakeJustice Malala really loves the Troyeville Hotel Book Club. So much so that he wrote a raving review of their frequent events, which has now become institution in Johannesburg, where authors and book lovers gather to enjoy good food and good conversation centered around a specific book.

Malala writes about one of the evenings he attended: “Our minds were sumptuously fed by the fabulous Justice Cameron, our tummies were filled and we had a book to take home and read. All was good with the world. All is always good when people read, eat and talk. It is life itself.”

Read the Let Them Eat Cake author’s Financial Mail column, and you might be inspired to join the book club yourself:

It’s my kind of place, filled with people with good stories to tell. This piece is not about that place, though — it is about one or two extremely special nights every month at the hotel. That is the Troyeville Hotel Book Club, which is gorgeous and amazing and wonderful.

This is how it works.

First, you have to love books. This is crucial, but it is not everything. You also have to love engaging with the people who write, read and love books.
