Over the past few weeks, students throughout the school have been enjoying attending senior and junior virtual book clubs. Ella, VII, one of the organisers of Literary Society, discusses their meetings so far:
Both clubs have met fortnightly this half term to discuss our chosen books and our favourite reads over the past couple of months. At Senior Book Club we enjoyed arguing over the actions and morals of the titular character of Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary whilst at the ‘Cover to Cover’ Junior Book Club we embraced this change to an online format to begin exploring some well-known classics, starting with Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Everyone enjoyed discussing gothic tropes and the cult of vampire fiction. We look forward to meeting again following half term to find out what everyone has been reading during this break from school.
