Library Book Club 2017-2018 Schedule

Painting by Sister Isabella Guerra (see image credit below).

The Library Book Club is excited to announce announce its tenth year of book talks and discussions, featuring works chosen to give pleasure, and just maybe, a little instruction. As always, we have tried to select a list that will appeal to a variety of interests, with both classic and contemporary fiction as well as thought-provoking works of non-fiction.

This year we begin with something truly different. As a tie-in to Regent’s Movie on the Lawn showing of Wonder Woman on September 16, the Book Club is sponsoring a discussion on approaching the film from a Christian perspective. Dr. Pete Fraser, professor of film and literature, will lead our conversation. This special event will take place on Friday, September 22

The overriding purpose of the Library Book Club is to encourage members of the Regent and CBN communities to make time in their schedules for reading.
