9th Nov Book Club Night! Adam Molyneaux (President)

salvete omnes!(Hey Everyone!)

Everyone is more than welcome to join us for our Book Club Night at 7pm on the 19th of Nov, via our Discord!

During our book club we want to hear what books you're reading currently reading/starting and what recommendations you have for all of us. No one is expected to be a bookworm so don't worry about not reading as much as you'd like, as we'll be taking up everyone's tips that help them read! Your book(s) don't have to be Classics orientated so no need to worry for not reading Sappho's Fragments or Ovid's The Metamorphoses in your own time.

No one sane does that to themselves! We can't wait to see you all there! <3

There'll be plenty of time at the end of the talk to pick Dr. Maeve O'Brien's brain over "the world's greatest poet" ! (according to Dr. O'Brien)

If you've any questions about the talk then don't hesitate to email us at classics@mulife.ie
