Love literature and want to read more about the climate? This book club gives you the perfect opportunity to discuss a variety of contemporary novels that engage with the changing climate. Engaging with world literature, from science fiction to realism, we will discuss the challenges of climate change and questions of hope, adaptability, and resilience as they emerge across these novels:
January – Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behaviour
February – Amitav Ghosh’s Gun Island
March – Maja Lunde’s The End of the Ocean
April – Ian McEwan’s Solar
May – Elif Shafak’s The Island of Missing Trees
June – Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future
The book club is developed and led by Dr Sarah Robertson (UWE English Literature), whose current research is on climate change and literature.
The book club is free of charge and you can join by dropping-in with no prior booking (though it would be great if you could let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are intending to join, just so we have a rough idea of numbers). It will take place on the first Tuesday of every month from January to June, from 7:00-9:00pm.
