If you enjoy reading, join in our Reading Group. We are holding a virtual reading group and the next meeting is on MS Teams on Wednesday 30 September at 2pm, where we will be reading The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides.
Alicia Berenson is famous painter married to Gabriel, an in-demand fashion photographer. One evening Alicia shoots her husband five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.
Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him.
We usually meet virtually on a fortnightly basis basis. All staff and students are welcome.
