R11 Reading Group
R11 Reading Group encourages our keenest and most committed readers to explore challenging and thought-provoking new books and discuss them in-depth.
Before half-term, we looked at ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman, a poignant and moving look at the Holocaust through the eyes of a ten-year-old Jewish boy in Poland in 1942.
All who attended thoroughly enjoyed the book and got a lot from it, and their insight and maturity were hugely impressive.
Next time we shall look at Sally Nicholls multiple award-winning* debut novel Ways to Live Forever, amazingly written when the author was only 23.
All in R11 who have read the book are welcome to attend.
