Great Expectations listen-along
Listen to Dickens's Great Expectations on Audrey and discuss it with a community of like-minded readers in December and January.
We'll be starting on December 19th, straight off the back of our A Christmas Carol and Other Festive Favourites listen-along, all the way through to the end of January 2024. We'll all be listening to in our own time (trying to stay somewhat close to the schedule!) and discussing in the Audrey Discord channel. Come and join us!
