Join the Libraries Book Club!

Enjoy meeting new people? Like exchanging ideas and insights? Love reading books? Join the Mason Libraries Book Club!

Mason Libraries Book Club meets monthly to discuss the group’s selected book. An informal club, you don’t need a background in literary criticism to attend! The book club is open to the whole Mason community, everyone is welcome.

Our first meeting of the academic year will be Wednesday, September 13 at 2pm in Fenwick 1009. At this meeting, we’ll discuss our theme for our first read of the year (Banned Books), select a book, and set future meeting dates. We look forward to seeing you there!

Looking for ideas on Banned Books? Banned Books Week takes place September 24-27 this year, and their website highlights banned books that shaped America. The American Library Association also tracks the most frequently challenged books from the past few decades. The World Library has a selected list of books banned by various governments around the world.

Questions? Contact one of the club’s organizers: Sarah Hudson at shudson7@gmu.edu or Anna Murphy-Lang at amurph2@gmu.edu. Information and announcements about the book club will be posted at library.gmu.edu/bookclub.
