Desert Island Books: Books & Identity @ Redland Library

18th February 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Thursday 28th February, the Friends of Redland Library are hosting another Desert Island Books event. The venue is Redland Library and the event starts at 7:30pm, with doors opening at 7:15pm.  Admission is £3 ( pay at the door ).

In Desert Island Books, a panel of interesting people select one book on the main theme for the event; and a second ‘wildcard book’, being a book that they have enjoyed and would recommend to others.

The theme for this event is “Books & Identity” and our panel comprises:

  • Professor Richard Cheston ( Department of Health & Social Sciences, UWE )
  • Professor Julian Hughes ( Medical School, University of Bristol )
  • Nikesh Shukla ( Writer, editor, Observer columnist )


Identity is important in so many ways – identity of self, family, place, social group, culture and politics to name a few.   What happens when we lose our identity or our identity is challenged?   Our panel is qualified to discuss these questions. 


The event is being organised by The Friends of Redland Library.  We are a voluntary group set up to support Redland Library, helping to sustain and improve its service, and also connecting it with the local and wider community.   Redland Library is situated on Whiteladies Road, close to Clifton Down train station.


Full details of this and future events can be found on our website https://FriendsOfRedlandLibrary.org.uk
