The Literature Table is an interest group designed for anyone with an interest in literature – especially, but not exclusively, those whose degrees were in this subject. It is intended not as a rigorously academic exercise, but as an opportunity for people who take pleasure in it to renew an interest in reading.
We meet four times a year over dinner in the King Edward VII Room to make conversation on a topic informally introduced by a visiting speaker. Our first two meetings this year can be seen below, and there will be two more, in September and November.
Tuesday 1 February – Speaker: Professor Judith Mossman – Subject: Shakespeare and the Classics
Tuesday 17 May 2022 – Speaker: Professor Sebastian Groes – Subject: Kazuo Ishiguro
