The Ecological Emergency Book Club – next book and February meeting

Happy New Year Book Clubbers! 

The first book club of the year will take place on Friday 9th February in the North Training Room in the Library (former Berkeley Library). The Book Club is open to all staff (professional, research, academic). 

This month we’re reading Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist

We have multiple copies in the Library but we love this one so much you might want to use one of your Christmas book vouchers! It’s widely available in paperback (it’s €13 in Easons for example) and you might find it second hand or in your local public library.
