The Brixton Library Session - Last Sunday of each month 1pm-3pm
The London Psychology Reading Group gets to the heart of psychology and personal development, selecting books that inspire, motivate and challenge us to reflect on our experiences and perceptions of the world.
Most books fall under psychology, wellbeing and personal development. This includes theoretically minded books by trailblazing psychologists, to personal development books that have intrigued, inspired and motivated millions.
For a unique psychological perspective, occasionally we feature biographies and fiction.
No need to be an academic to get involved! We're a non-pretentious easygoing bunch keen to read and reflect philosophically on our experiences: only popular, accessible and inspiring books on the reading list.

The overarching aim is to build a friendly community of lovers of books all relating to psychology. The reading group is a friendly refuge where members have a chance to share thoughts and engage in stimulating conversation.
