We are a small, friendly club meeting monthly for lively discussion of European crime books chosen by members and to keep abreast of new developments and events in the genre. You can check out details of what we’ll be reading on the 3Ls website/noticeboard and you are very welcome to join us if it kindles your interest. Meetings take place on the third Tuesday of the month from 4.30pm – 6.00pm in room GH232 unless otherwise indicated on the 3Ls website/noticeboard.
Annual subscription £10. To join the group you must first be a member of the 3Ls Association.
