Events happening At George's

Library LGBT History Month

The Library will be helping to celebrate LGBT History Month by putting out a display of our LGBT book collection on Monday 6th February. The books were selected from recommendations given to us by the LGBT staff network at St George's.  We have a varied collection including memoirs, an LGBT casebook for healthcare professionals, graphic novels, stories and a well known play from 1979, first performed by Iam Mckellan. We would also like thank Margot Turner (Senior Lecturer in Diversity and Medical Education) for donating two novels from her own collection to the library.


The books are searchable from the Library Catalogue  [link: http://unicorn.sgul.ac.uk/uhtbin/cgisirsi.exe/x/x/0/49/] using the search term: lgbtq. You can also browse the collection on our Wakelet

Do you have any plans this summer? Fancy embarking on a trip of a lifetime, whilst adding something fantastic for CV? Well, Childreach International – an international child rights charity - is offering some incredible opportunities!
One of the trips is to climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world… Mount Kilimanjaro! Travelling out to Tanzania next Summer, it will take 6 days to climb to Uhuru Peak and summit the Mountain at 5,895m above sea level! Or how does exploring the lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu. An incredible, unique, ancient city that’s sits high on top of a mountain in the Peruvian Andes; not far from the festive, high altitude city of Cusco!
To find out more, head over to the FINAL and LAST chance information meetings on the 6th February in LTF at 5pm for Kilimanjaro (Facebook event) and 6pm for Machu Picchu (Facebook event) or message your Challenge Office Zara for more details about how you can get involved: zara.canfield@childreach.org.uk
