Reading Group

We are an open group for all those Rebels interested in hearing and sharing thoughts on the ever-expanding quantities of climate and environmental literature out there.

Its run like a conventional book group where we aim to read one book a month and then get together to discuss it and write a short review for the website.

Although the focus has been on written material we also hope to be able to discuss other media forms expressing climate emergency ideas, such as films and documentaries.

Everyone welcome, share your thoughts, exchange ideas, propose new material to soothe, challenge or entertain!

Each Lewes & Ouse Valley XR Reading Group session runs from 8-9.30pm (currently via Zoom) and the dates are:


November 19th


January 7th, February 18th, April 1st, May 13th, June 24th, August 5th, September 16th, October 28th and December 9th.
