When: Every Thursday, 6pm – launching 7 February
Where: Templeman Library, D|G|02
We have been working with Kent Union to create a book club for students who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies. The book club will have a chosen book to read for a month and will be related to social and political topics in the 21st century.
To kick things off we will be exploring African American Author James Baldwin and his literature with a particular focus on his 1956 novel ‘Giovanni’s Room’. The book focuses on relationships and sexuality in 1950’s Paris, France.
During each meeting we will have discussions about themes found throughout the book, touching on topic like masculinity and sexual identity, as well as the idea of LGBTQ+ spaces and their increased popularity in our day to day lives.
There’s no need to register, just come along to D|G|02 (D Block, Ground Floor, behind the group study rooms). You don’t have to commit to coming every week. If you want to join the conversation online, use #UniKentBookClub and just pop in to the book club next time you’re free!
