Watch the latest #UPisLit book review video!

Posted on June 27, 2022

The Department of Library Services has launched a new #UPisLit video featuring Information Specialist, Adrienne Warricker, sharing her review on the novel 'Seabiscuit' written by Laura Hillenbrand. 

The novel follows a story that takes place in the midst of the Great Depression. A businessman coping with the tragic death of his son, a jockey with a history of brutal injuries and a down-and-out horse trainer team up to help Seabiscuit, a temperamental, undersized racehorse.

#UPisLit is our book review series for everyone who loves reading, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction and a book is reviewed in no longer than 1 minute.

We would like to encourage other University of Pretoria staff and students who would like to review any fiction or non-fiction books via #UPisLit to contact Elsabé Olivier at [email protected].

We hope you enjoy it!
