Good news! Two reading groups for Hillcroft students are starting this week. There’s a monthly group led by Karen from Kingston University that met on Wednesday. The weekly reading group is meeting for the first time today led by Kim.

The idea is to increase reading confidence, enjoyment of reading and start new conversations among women with an common interest in reading.

Each reading group’s identity will grow over time shaped by the interests and ambitions of the group. Both groups are yet to be named by their members. In my mind they will be the ‘No. 1 Ladies Reading Groups’ after Alexander McCall Smith’s series.

The “Wednesday/Monthly” group will have childcare options in the future and we’ll let you know about that in further updates.

If you are inspired by the reading groups please join the Reading Ahead Challenge as well. The LRC will give you a diary to think about your reading journey over six reads.

There’s a survey to help us see how the reading groups go. If you haven’t filled one in and you’d like to sign up for the next reading group meeting or the Reading Ahead challenge, send the LRC an email and we’ll try to find space: lrc@hillcroft.ac.uk.

Hope you all enjoyed the reading groups so far if you have been involved. Big thanks to Karen and Kim for their energy and expertise in leading the meetings.
