      While the COVID-19 crisis continues, and until we can safely meet in person, we will continue to hold our monthly reading group meetings on Microsoft Teams, and will post starter questions and a write-up of each meeting for those who would rather take part on the forum. Wherever possible, we have opted for texts that are freely available online (see links below).

      For further information, visit the Reading Group page: https://chawtonhouse.org/the-library/join-our-reading-group/
