In George Green’s, we have several flourishing book clubs for students and staff. Members share title suggestions each term to compile a shortlist with the final choice decided by vote. Members then meet up to chat about their thoughts on the book with lots of ad hoc chat in between!
The two staff book clubs (Young Adult fiction and adult fiction/non-fiction) have over 25 members from all corners of the school from Maths to Drama, Business to MFL. When members in the Young Adult Fiction Staff Book Club finish reading the ‘Book of the Term’, they lend it directly to students they suspect might also enjoy it. Once returned, it’s lent again and again. This often sees students and staff reading the same book in the playground and even at bus stops. You can read comments and reviews by clicking on the covers.
Add to this, the general Staff Book Club are on their tenth book since summer 2020: James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room. See all titles read and discussed below.
