Discussion, Workshop

For this meeting we will be discussing Sally Rooney's Normal People. Soon to be televised by the BBC, it's been hailed for its witty, but often stark, depiction of young romance amidst the pressures of gender and class.

Our Book Club is open to all current and former students and staff of Loughborough University. We typically meet every six weeks to discuss a book chosen by our members. These are usually, but not always, novels. There is no need to email in advance of a meeting: just join us and contribute or listen to the discussion through one of the methods detailed below. 

Due to Covid-19 we are currently meeting virtually, with a group video call and a forum on Good Reads. Members are welcome to contribute through one or both of these. Please email d.m.bell@lboro.ac.uk to join the video call.

Content note: Normal People depicts physical/emotional/sexual abuse, eating disorders, mental illness and domestic violence(Please note that content notes are based on information available online. LU Arts staff do not read the novels in advance of them being chosen by book club.)
