Join the Friends of Senate House Library for their regular book club, which coordinates with the current Senate House Library season, Reformation. This season, the Friends will be discussing The Book of Common Prayer, led by Professor Tom Healy.

We ask that participants of this event use Brian Cummings' recent Oxford World's Classics edition of the Book Of Common Prayer: The Texts of 1549, 1559 and 1662. Read about the Book of Common Prayer on the British Library website.
