Book of Sands

Book of Sands by Karim Alrawi

Book Club Spring 2016

Facilitated by the author, Karim Alrawi. An atmospheric, multi-layered story of intimate lives, informed by recent events and heightened by touches of magic realism, set against the wider canvas of historic events.

Curiosity

Curiosity by Joan Thomas

Book Club Fall 2015

Facilitated by Rhea Tregebov, Associate Professor, Creative Writing Program. In 1812, a 12 year-old girl dug the skeleton of what she thought was a dragon out of the cliff on an English beach. Mary Anning was poor and barely literate. Her astonishing find–– a thirty-foot Ichthyosaur from the Jurassic Period—turned the science of the day upside down and set the course of Mary’s life.

Galore

Galore by Michael Crummey

Book Club Fall 2015

Facilitated by Francine Cunningham, BFA’11. An intricate family saga and love story spanning two centuries, Galore is a portrait of the improbable medieval world that was rural Newfoundland, a place almost too harrowing and extravagant to be real.
