The Honors College Book Club was founded in order to enable and encourage Honors students from all disciplines to read and discuss literature in an informal, non-classroom setting. The college provides free books for members and suggestions for our reading are made and voted upon by the members themselves. The Book Club meets twice each month throughout the fall and spring semesters, and once a week during summers. Most discussions of our books are student-led, and coffee and refreshments are provided at meetings. We would love to welcome any interested student to join the Book Club; please email the Book Club Coordinator, Sarah Timmons for more information and to become a member.
