One campus, one book, reading together
Have you ever participated in a book club? What about a book club with hundreds of members?
The UBC Okanagan Library is hosting a campus-wide book club starting in October and all faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to participate.
One Book programs have become popular in the past decade, with a number of cities and university campuses hosting their own.
For the inaugural UBC Okanagan event, the Library has chosen Progress, a novel by Michael V. Smith, assistant professor of creative writing.
As part of One Book UBCO, the UBC Okanagan Library will be hosting a series of readings, guest lectures and other events around the book throughout the month of October. Events will include a reading by Michael V. Smith, a Q&A session with the author and talks from faculty and staff on topics related to the book and its themes.
Members of the campus community can borrow Progress from the UBC Okanagan Library or the Okanagan Regional Library. You can also purchase it from the UBC Okanagan Bookstore, Mosaic Books or online.
You can also participate in the discussion by using the hashtag #OneBookUBCO or by joining the Goodreads discussion group.
Be part of the first One Book UBCO — one campus, one book, reading and discussing together.
