Book Club


Biographies and History, Politics and Philosophy

  • Biographies 12:30pm – 1:30-2:00pm in the Leather Room, Professors’ Walk (including autobiography and memoir) features the lives of artists, musicians, scientists, politicians, reformers, travellers and literary figures.
  • HPP 5:00pm – 6:00-6:30pm in the Leather Room, Professors’ Walk is more analytical, and books will draw on: history, politics & society; philosophy & religion.
  • Which one should I choose? Flexibility between genres and times allows for ‘double-dipping’ for any ravenous readers wanting to attend both groups.


Both book discussions will last approximately one hour. Participants are welcome to stay in the Club to continue discussion and to enjoy the cafe, bar and bistro facilities at Professors’ Walk. Lunch is available from 12 noon and bar snacks from 4.30 pm.


Both groups will be facilitated voluntarily by Jacky Angus, staff member of The University since 1999, most recently at the Office for Research Ethics & Integrity; retired February 2015.
