This spring the Swedish Species Information Centre and the SLU University Library invite all SLU staff to a new book club focusing on species and biodiversity. The club will read three books in Swedish during the semester, and meet to discuss each of them.

The books fall into the popular science category and you don’t need any prior knowledge in the subject to understand them or participate in the book club. The first book is Skogen: om träd, människor och 25 000 andra arter by Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson, followed by Ålevangeliget by Patrik Svensson and Tyst jord by David Goulson.

 – It was the Swedish Species Information Centre’s idea, and we’re thrilled the got in touch with us about it. This is exactly the type of collaboration we like the best, when different parts of SLU can contribute with their particular expertise, and the library can serve as a facilitator and help spread the information to people outside of the institution. We’ll see how this works out. Hopefully it’ll attract a lot of participants, and we can keep it going, says Kee Lundqvist, who works with events at the SLU University Library
