ULA Book Club

The University Library Association Book Club meets monthly, alternating between fiction and nonfiction books.

Join us for thought provoking conversation about the book which often includes supplemental materials about the time and place of the story in addition to questions about the plot or characters. We welcome you attend whether or not you have read the book or have been to a University Library Association event before.

This social group meets over zoom to make it easy to fit into your schedules. We typically meet the last Friday of the month from 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm with some variation to accommodate holidays. The ULA Book Club also holds in-person restaurant or home meetings to host local authors or discuss books at large. The mix of Zoom and meetings in person is determined by Book Club attendees.

Please  email nancy.clark@du.edu to get the zoom link for a specific date or to be added to the communication list for updates.
