The Submarine, June 2009

This year's final edition of the excellent Library magazine, The Submarine, is out now, and is a bumper 16-page sign-off, with plenty of food for thought. Appropriately, given the weeks ahead of us, it focusses on reading. It can be read online via Issuu below, or downloaded to your computer from the College site here.

The guest editor this time is Fiona Boyd from V form, who Librarian Tom McConville commends for her 'sure touch and irresistible force of personality' (in other words, if you said you'd write something, you'd better turn up with the goods). Among the articles are reviews by Anna Traill of Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses, of Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things by Dr Garry Bannister, and of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by Sarah O'Mahony. There are also poems by Fiona Boyd and Opeline Kellett.

In addition, there's an edited transcript of this blog's podcast interview with Professor Terry Dolan on Geoffrey Chaucer, a summary of this term's new Library books, a story by I former Christian Sullivan called 'Hitler's Scientist', an advice column on reading by Virginia Peck, and lots of both enlightening and entertaining comments under the 'What's Reading Me?' heading by plenty of staff and pupils.
