The BookBar Sessions with...

C Pam Zhang on Land of Milk and Honey

Tuesday 10th October, 7pm

BookBar, 166 Blackstock Road, London, N5 1HA

Join C Pam Zhang to discuss her novel Land of Milk and Honey at BookBar on Tuesday 10th October at 7pm.


It's been billed as one of the novels of Autumn 2023 by everyone from the New York Times and Marie Claire to Caleb Azumah Nelson, Raven Leilani, Gabrielle Zevin, Roxanne Gay, and us here at BookBar. And now we are welcoming C Pam Zhang to BookBar to talk about her second novel Land of Milk and Honey.


In a world consumed by a smog that has led to the collapse of biodiversity, a talented chef is invited to be the private chef for a billionaire in a remote community in Italy's alps.


Following her Booker-longlisted How Much of These Hills is Gold, C Pam Zhang returns with an astonishing second novel that confronts our world's perceptions of class, race, climate, food and love.


We can't wait to welcome her to BookBar on Tuesday 10th October at 7pm to hear all about Land of Milk and Honey. Join us by buying your ticket, which includes a copy of the book, at the link below.

C Pam Zhang is the author of How Much of These Hills Is Gold and the forthcoming Land of Milk and Honey. She is the winner of the Academy of Arts and Letters Rosenthal Award and the Asian/Pacific Award for Literature, a Booker Prize nominee, and a finalist for numerous other prizes, including the the PEN/Hemingway Award and the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize. Zhang’s writing appears in Best American Short Stories, The Cut, The New Yorker, and The New York Times. She is a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Honoree and a current New York Public Library Cullman Fellow.

The event will start promptly at 7pm, finishing by 8:15pm, followed by a book signing.

Your ticket includes a copy of Land of Milk and Honey (RRP: £16.99). We do not offer tickets without a copy of the book.

The BookBar BookClub

BookBar is all about bringing people together through books. We know that half the fun of reading the book is discussing it with fellow readers afterwards, preferably with a glass of wine or cup of coffee.


BookBar's book club is created especially for that purpose. Our virtual book club promises all the fun of the in-person thing, and some additional surprises.

How does it work?


Sign up, receive your book in advance of the book club with plenty of time to read it, send in the questions and discussion points you'd like us to talk about, and come along to a virtual interview with the author, in which we'll discuss the book. You'll receive a link to the online event a few days before.

Your ticket price includes a copy of the book, as well as attendance at the virtual event. Buy a ticket to a single event for £18 or subscribe to the book club for £15 a month.

As we pick the freshest paperbacks, the books get sent out at the same time each month to all subscribers, regardless of when the ticket was purchased, so the 3-5 day shipping window does not apply for BookClub purchases as in most cases the books have not yet been published when the programme is launched.

***NB: If you have previously subscribed to the BookClub and are still making monthly payments, you do not need to sign up again as your subscription is still active***
