The next Virtual Reading Group meeting

If you enjoy reading, join in our Reading Group. We are holding a virtual reading group.

The next book  we will be reading is 'Dear Reader' by 'Cathy Retzenbrink'

“Dear Reader is a moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, packed with recommendations from one reader to another.
For as long as she can remember, Cathy Rentzenbrink has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up she was rarely seen without her nose in a book and read in secret long after lights out. When tragedy struck, books kept her afloat. Eventually they lit the way to a new path, first as a bookseller and then as a writer. No matter what the future holds, reading will always help”.

All staff and students are welcome and we meet at 2pm on 25 November on Teams. We look forward to seeing you then.

In order to access the Teams meeting please follow the link below. Once you have clicked on the link you will be able to join the meeting from there. Alternatively you can request to join the team by emailing Fran Porritt on f.porritt@tees.ac.uk
