Westfield London Book Club: Scoop - Evelyn Waugh

Tuesday 29th April 2014 7:30pm - 8:30pm Westfield White City, Foyles Unit 2054, Westfield, White City, London, W12 7GE Literary Event, Free Event

Lord Cooper, newspaper magnate and proprietor of the Daily Beast, has always prided himself on his intuitive flair for spotting ace reporters. That is not to say he has not made the odd blunder, however, and may in a moment of weakness make another. Acting on a dinner-party tip from Mrs Algernon Stitch he feels convinced that he has hit on just the chap to cover a promising little war in the African Republic of Ishmaelia. One of Waugh's most exuberant comedies, Scoop is a brilliantly irreverent satire of Fleet Street and its hectic pursuit of hot news.

The Foyles at Westfield London Book Club meets on the last Tuesday of every month in the Old Library at the Bush Theatre. Book Club members enjoy 15% off each month's book when bought from our Westfield London store - ask instore for more details, or email our Duty Managers at whidms@foyles.co.uk.
