Little Science book club

How it works

Each book club will have a theme – I chose a theme for the first book club, but going forward you’ll have the chance to vote for the theme. Once the theme is decided, we’ll choose from a group of books that all fit that theme. All polls will be listed here, and I’ll announce them on Little Science co social media accounts (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) so that you know when there’s a new poll ready for you to vote on.
Once the book has been chosen, we have roughly 6 weeks to read it, and then we’ll meet up on Zoom to talk about the book. Each Zoom meeting is limited to 10 attendees, so I will be doing a few different slots to ensure that everyone who wants to take part, can.

Please register for a Zoom session using the Eventbrite links listed below, if you have registered and then realise you can no longer attend, please remember to cancel your booking so that someone else is able to attend in your place.

If you would like to take part, but are unable to afford the cost of the book, and cannot access a copy from your local library, please let me know. The Little Science Co Book Club is completely free to take part in, and I will do my best to ensure that finances are not a barrier for you.

Our next book club book

The next Little Science Co Book Club’s theme is: Hormones, periods, and the menopause, and the book you voted for is: How The Pill Changes Everything by Dr Sarah E. Hill.

The Book Club discussions will take place during the week of Monday 13th June, and take place on Zoom, you can book your free slot below. As always, if you have trouble accessing the book, please let me know.
