Works Loved

This week’s Page Breaks session will return to our ‘Works Loved’ format. We often have a cohering theme, but this week we invite you to bring any favourite text. Are there books that you return to in difficult times? Passages you read for pleasure or relaxation? A text you’ve read recently but anticipate will stay with you for a long time? We invite you to share them all, whether they’ve come into your life through sentimental attachments, scholarly commitment, or some other way. Find out more about the Works Loved format here: https://blog.bham.ac.uk/englitpostgrad/works-loved/


No set text – you could bring along a passage to read from, or just come ready to talk with us about your chosen book(s).
