‘Breaking Books’ serves as the inspiration for the University of Dundee’s 2022 Hub programme. Books nourished us during the pandemic, and as timeless artifacts they record the greatest of human breakthroughs. But reading can be ableist, and books prohibitively expensive. This series of events will liberate stories from the gutters of the comic strip, bring Angus folklore out of the confines of history books, celebrate the female trailblazers of Science Fiction, and return tales of terror and wonder to the mouths of the narrators. Everyone has a story to tell, even if they don’t know it yet!
