The Staff Wellbeing Team have set up a regular book club for staff, reading and discussing a variety of books. The book club is open to all staff and meets every 4-6 weeks, and is currently held online to allow for everyone to join whether on campus or at home.

It was suggested by a member of Book Club that it might be nice to partner with a local independent book shop. Read in Holmfirth would love to be involved in our Book Club and have recommended several books and are hoping to be involved in other ways in the future. Read are offering a discount in store, or Free Delivery if you order books to come to your door. If anyone is interested in purchasing via Read their website link is here: Welcome to Read Holmfirth - Read Bookshop - Holmfirth

You are welcome to source Book Club books from your local library, any online shop, kindle, audible or supplier of your choice.

Our next book club is on Wednesday 22nd June 2022 12.45pm - 1.15pm via Teams or 10 - 10.30am in person, in room SB9/07a.

 

The book we will be discussing is A Three Dog Problem by S.J. Bennett.

 'Queen Elizabeth II is having a royal nightmare.

A referendum divides the nation, a tumultuous election grips the United States - and the body of a staff member is found dead beside Buckingham Palace swimming pool.

Is it a tragic accident, as the police think? Or is something more sinister going on?

As Her Majesty looks for answers, her trusted assistant, Rozie, is on the trail of a treasured painting that once hung outside the Queen's bedroom.

But when Rozie receives a threatening anonymous letter, Elizabeth knows dark forces are at work - and far too close to home. After all, though the staff and public may not realise it, she is the keenest sleuth among them. Sometimes, it takes a Queen's eye to see connections where no one else can...

 Agatha Christie meets The Crown in A THREE DOG PROBLEM, the much anticipated second book in the 'Her Majesty The Queen Investigates' mystery series by SJ Bennett.'
