Library Book Club 2013-2014 schedule

The Library Book Club is ready to begin its seventh year of book talks and discussions, featuring works chosen to give pleasure, and just perhaps, an increase in perspective and sensibility. As always, we have selected a diverse reading list of classics and contemporary works.

Special visit by President Campo

President Campo brings his trademark erudition and dramatic flair to The Comedy of Errors on October 11.

On Friday, October 11 at 12:00, President Campo will lead a discussion about Shakespeare’s early but influential play, The Comedy of Errors. This event has been timed to coincide with opening night of Regent Theatre’s production of the play.

Distance students and faculty welcome

After receiving numerous requests from distance students and faculty for a way to join in Book Club discussions, this year we will try video conferencing our meetings via Google+ Hangouts. More information about this experiment will be posted in this space and on the Library Facebook page soon.

Make a commitment to yourself this year to read literature.

The responsibilities of academic life (for students, faculty, and staff) often mean that reading for enrichment and enjoyment gets pushed to the wayside. The mission of the Library Book Club is to encourage the reading of great literature by bringing members of the Regent and CBN communities together to enjoy the unique (and often self-revealing) pleasure of exploring books together.

Dates & Times

Except for special events, the Book Club meets one Friday each month at noon in the Library Conference Room, located inside Library Administration. Check the events tab of our Facebook page for confirmed dates and times. Tea and refreshments are served, and participants are welcome to bring a lunch.
