And with this book club, LLACE wraps up its events for this academic year! We gathered this sunny evening to discuss Tillie Walden’s brilliant graphic novel “On a Sunbeam”. We talked about the characters, the diverse storylines, the illustrations, escapism, friendship, love, secrets, mysteries and the beautiful world this story is built in. The collective rating of the book was 4.875, which looks promising! We were looking for a wholesome,

TB: March Book Club

To honour Women’s History Month, Michelle Obama’s podcast was definitely the right choice, and discussing topics such as diversity in leadership, failure, race, to name but a few, was a great way to spend our evening. It is safe to say that podcasts are a great choice to listen to, and Michelle Obama’s down-to-earth conversation with her mentors and mentees was definitely the right pick for this book club.

TB: PSE Workshop

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our sign language workshop, we were thrilled to have you all there and learn the basics of PSE along with you. From learning the alphabet to learning greetings, questions, literature-related terms, and signs for emergencies, we were super excited and hope you were too. Big thanks to Milena for hosting such a successful evening, and for being such a great tutor.

TB: February Book Club

This book club was a little different from our previous ones, as this was a collaboration with our student magazine Writer’s Block! From reading their 45th issue, to planning the book club together, to finally discussing it on Zoom, attendees also had the opportunity to talk with the editors, illustrators, and authors about what the process of writing is like, as well as exchanging ideas and thoughts on the respective

TB: Bake & Chat

What batter way to ring in the weekend than to bake, eat, and chat? Along with discussing movies (particularly the bad ones), participants asked and provided for some very useful tips on how to cope with (online) uni life, including managing stress and workload. We loved seeing some new faces and the yummy goods people brought with them – a big thank you to all who came, and remember: keep
