Come along to the Book Break Reading Group

05 Jun 2015

The next meeting of the Book Break Reading Group is on Thursday, 11 June (4-5pm) in the Chill Out Room, Wellbeing Rooms, Precinct Centre - everyone (staff or student) is welcome

Book Break Reading Group

Book Break is a reading group for which you don’t need to prepare: just turn up, relax and tune in, following along as a short story is read aloud.

So far, we have read short stories by Miranda July, Michael S Chong and AS Byatt. They have prompted all sorts of chats, from the nature of our relationship with our hairdresser, to the likeability (or otherwise) of Daniel Craig.

Book Break is all about the ‘in the moment’ response to the story – whether we like the characters, what we would do in their place, what’s going to happen next - and is for fun and relaxation.
