Last year we launched a book club, held in the Library and open to staff and students with an interest in reading and talking about a range of different books. As it has been a while since we publicised its existence we thought this would be a good time to let people know what we’re about in case you are interested in joining us.
We are a small group who take it in turns to shortlist books – predominantly fiction to date – for the group to choose the next read from. Participants then read the selected book independently before meeting up to have a chat about it one lunch-time. Titles previously discussed include Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, Room by Emma Donoghue and Elizabeth Kostova’s The Swan Thieves, and our current read is The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. At the moment the group is comprised entirely of staff but is open to all and we would welcome some new faces and opinions!
If you are interested in taking part, our next meeting, where we will discuss John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, is scheduled for:
1-2pm on Thursday 19th April in the Library Seminar Room (2nd floor of the Library)
Please feel free to come along on the day, or if you have any questions, contact Jane.Rogers@brunel.ac.uk
