The next Reading Group meeting

If you enjoy reading, join in our Reading Group. Whilst the University is closed due to Coronavirus we are holding a virtual reading group

The next meeting is on MS Teams on Wednesday 8 July at 2pm, where we will be reading Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo. It has recently been serialised on Radio 4.

Winner of the Booker Prize 2019, Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.

For information on joining the virtual Reading Group sessions see, 

Once the Library is open again we usually meet on a monthly basis in term time. All staff and students are welcome, please come and join us for coffee and cake.
