The Really Popular Book Club: Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

7:00pm-8:00pm on Tuesday 19 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Zoom Meetings, Online, online

Join Cambridge University Library’s online book group, The Really Popular Book Club, as we discuss JM Barrie’s best-loved children’s book, Peter Pan, for the Cambridge Festival 2024.

All children, except one, grow up… Peter Pan and his adventures in Neverland with the Darlings have delighted generations. But is JM Barrie’s famous creation all childhood innocence, or something stranger? Join Dr Sarah Pyke, Munby Fellow 2023–24 and researcher of 20th-century children’s books, to revisit this children’s classic.

Everyone is welcome to come and discuss this book with the group, library staff and an expert on the novel. Hosted on Zoom, the book club is completely free and open to everyone – people attend from all over the world.

The Really Popular Book Club celebrates the huge range of books at Cambridge University Library. We have more than 8 million books; and as a legal deposit library, we keep a copy of every book published in the UK, and have done since 1710.
