Summer Reading Program

This isn't your usual book club! We're not all reading the same book each month. But if you like to read and talk about what you're reading (and meet other students who do, too!), join us for a monthly meet-up.

We'll have a discussion topic each month, a guest speaker (when available), and a list of recommended reads for that month's themes.

Meetings are on the first Wednesday of the month at 2:30 in the library (A212).

Next meeting: September 7, 2022

Topic: Welcome and overview of popular library materials
