Inception and Overview
In July 2017, the OSU Alumni Club of Athens County launched a book club for the membership. The goal of this book club is to be a venue that will bring readers together, encouraging reading for enrichment and pleasure.
We began with reading titles assigned for OSU’s Common Experience but branched out to include other titles. Our reading list includes both non-fiction and fiction, but non-fiction is our primary choice. We read one book a month and then meet to discuss.
The purpose of our book club is to engage with the club members who are interested in reading, engaging in discussion, and enjoying camaraderie with like-minded members.
We strive to read as diverse list each year as possible. The main criteria for inclusion are literary quality, readability and appropriate length, and interest to the book club members.
