Ten-Minute Book Club is a collaboration between TORCH, the Faculty of English, and LitHits, a free app being created in the Faculty of English at Oxford.
Reading allows us to immerse ourselves in a moment of calm. It can also open new worlds and feelings to explore, and expand our horizons even while our physical movement is limited. Literature can put the current situation into perspective, and give us hope for the future. The benefits of reading increase exponentially when we involve other people by reading together, or by talking about the ideas that come from experiencing literature in a book club.
Last week, Dr Alexandra Paddock spoke on BBC Radio Oxford about the Ten-Minute Book Club. Listen to the interview here.
