This year's RoeReads book

The RoeReads initiative is Roehampton's collective reading experience, in association with the Booker Prize Foundation. Distributing over 3,500 free copies of the Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel Room to students and staff, the intention is to create a university-wide conversation.

Students will have the chance to attend a series of events designed to supplement the book, including a free cinema afternoon, and the chance to meet the author at a special in conversation event, hosted by Joanna Briggs, VP Education at Roehampton's Students' Union.

This year's novel, Room by Emma Donoghue, was nominated for the Man Booker Prize in 2010, and was also made into an Oscar winning film in 2015 that starred Brie Larson.

The book will be available for students and staff to pick up throughout October. Join us for a film screening on 24 October in Monte Hall in the Students' Union, and listen to Emma Donoghue speak about the novel on 22 November.
