Book Clubs


Book Club

Clubs are scheduled for the fall term, beginning in October. Faculty members can sign up for one or all of them but must commit to reading assigned pages and participating in weekly discussions over a 4 – 6 week period. Faculty members are given a personal copy of the book to keep. Open to resident and adjunct faculty.


Here are some of the book clubs we have hosted previously
