Silent Book Club
Saturday March 2
9:30 AM
Felker Room
 
Silent Book Club is a new take on traditional book clubs. Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books and friends without any homework? At Silent Book Club, there's no assigned reading. You can read anything you'd like at any pace you'd like. Silent Book Club is about having a community of readers to come together with.
 
The first half hour of each month's meeting will be for socializing with fellow readers. Talk about what you're reading, share book recommendations, discuss upcoming reads, and the like. After that half hour we encourage all attendants to get comfortable in the Library with their book and read.
 
It's very simple, casual, and enjoyable for all. We invite anyone of any age who wishes to participate. Come join our community!
