Non-Fiction November

Wednesday 22nd November 2017 at the Guille-Allès Library

During the Autumn term, SLS like to focus on the enjoyment of all things non-fiction.  SLS Librarians will run groups with students to discuss the annual SLA Information Book shortlist. These groups will then be invited to attend our event to discuss the books and finally reveal the highly anticipated winner.

Ann Bryant
