Due to the current circumstances regarding COVID-19, Cardiff BookTalk will run as an online series of events for the 2020-21 academic year. We hope this will allow us to maintain social distancing and still provide the book group with a difference: discussing expert perspectives and readers’ views about the big ideas in a range of classic and contemporary fiction.

More information will be provided as linked items closer to the events.
