Every Tuesday of Term (Tuesday 9 Oct - Tuesday 27 Nov)
6pm - 7pm
The University Church Book Club meets on Tuesday evenings in term time, and is an informal gathering at which we discuss great literature and get to know each other. This term we will be reading Brodie’s Report, a selection of short stories by the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. One of the most famous Latin American authors, Borges wrote in a number of genres but he is best known for his short stories.
Each week, we invite a speaker to introduce the story and help us think about the issues which it provokes. Where possible, we have sought to find a version online.
