Last month we announced that we had appointed a new Staff Events Manager to plan staff only events every term.
The first of these will be a virtual Media and Book Club, which we hope to make a regular event.
The idea is to pick a film, TV show, documentary or book for the group to watch or read individually (all suggestions welcome) and then we’ll get together to have a chat about it over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
During the summer of 1986, ten-yr-old Tate Millikin is uprooted and forced to move to the suburbs of Kansas City. When his transphobic father discovers that their next door neighbour is a trans woman named Gossamer, he forbids Tate to even say hello to her. As Tate’s parents’ marriage unravels, Tate defies his father’s orders and, instead, forms a powerful bond with Gossamer and her father, Edward, a retired English professor.
You can watch the movie for free from 8-11 October and we will then host the discussion on Wednesday 14 October at 8pm.
