Waterstone’s Classics: A Chance to Dip into Literature on your Lunch Hour

Waterstone’s Liverpool One organizes a series of free talks by academics from the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Edge Hill University on Wednesdays from 1-2 pm. It’s a great chance to dip into a work you’ve always been curious about or to learn more about a novel or book you’ve always enjoyed (and to meet a few of the Continuing Education Lecturers who are participating).Waterstones
