Reading Group: Semester 1 2017-18

Dear members,

I’m looking forward to re-starting our reading group in Semester 1. The current plan is to hold the group fortnightly on Thursdays between 5 and 6pm. At our last Middlemarch meeting, 3 potential novels were selected: Sarah Grand’s The Beth Book, Charlotte Bronte’s Shirley, and Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. Please vote for your preference here.

Best wishes,

Lizzie
