Desert Island Books

Desert Island Books

Barts Health Knowledge and Library Services are launching a fun ‘Desert Island books’ campaign. Each month, a member of #TeamBartsHealth staff will be cast away on a fictional desert island with six books of their choice.

We hope that this will provide staff with some light relief at an incredibly difficult time and also help us to get to know our colleagues via the ‘castaway’ books they choose.

Would you like to feature as a Castaway? Or have a suggestion of a member of #TeamBartsHealth you would like to hear from?

Here is what we hope our Castaways would provide to put the piece together:

  • The list of your six books, including one that you have never read before, and a short reason why you have made each choice.
  •  A photo of yourself.
