World Book Day
Blake, Milton, Murkakami, tragic heroes, murderous women, graphic novels and inspirational climbers. To top it all off, a wander through the world according to Philomena Cunk. World Book Day certainly had a varied flavour to its topics this year.
At lunchtime, the Harrison Centre was turned over to a mini-literary festival with students able to attend up to three different talks on such wide and enriching topics as Three Books Everyone Should Have Read, The Ancient Hero in Modern Fiction and What does it take to be an awesome climber? Learning from biographies. The atmosphere was electric as students fully embraced this year’s slogan: Reading is Power.
