We are very excited to announce that the first Helicon Book Club meeting will be taking place on Thursday the 27th of February at 5pm in Boston Tea Party on Park Street!

The first book will be the amazing 'The Diving-Bell and the Butterfly' by Jean-Dominque Bauby. This incredible book tells the story of how Bauby's life changed following a massive stroke which left him with locked-in syndrome.

The book is available on Amazon and AbeBooks - with some used copies for as little as £1.80, and there are also a few copies in a few of the university libraries. There is also a brilliant, award-winning film adaptation starring Mathieu Amalric which is definitely worth a watch and also available from the library. 

There are just 10  places for the group- email us at  in to let us know if you're interested. Places will be given on a first come, first serve basis. 

This group is available to Helicon members only, click here to join!
