‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ reading groups

November 30th, 2016

This year, the University gave all new students the opportunity to pick up a free, customised edition of Douglas Adams’ science fiction classic, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

This version of the book was created especially for the Nottingham Reading Programme, which was set up to give students a conversational ice-breaker as they settle into their new homes, encourage reading for pleasure and ultimately build a sense of community.

Join one of our reading groups to talk about the book and meet new people. Please let us know if you’re coming along by emailing carol.hollier@nottingham.ac.uk.
