Whether you love to read fiction, or you think fiction isn’t for you, our short story collection for Welcome 2021 will give you something to think about, and to talk about!
Changing Natures is a collection of seven short stories that you can dip in and out of as you prepare for the new academic year. Some of the stories are from world-famous authors like George Orwell and Toni Morrison, and others are written by our very own students. Each story reflects on the concept of ‘Changing Natures’, the environment, human nature or the changing world around us – from ‘The Demon Lover’ to ‘A Cadaver’s Guide to Referenda’ to ‘The Last Question’, you’ll find something to interest and inspire you.
You can download the FREE e-book here: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/welcome/welcome-and-induction/the-great-read/ and add it to your chosen reading device to enjoy in your own time.* Once you’ve read the book, here are a few suggested ways to get involved:
