About the Book Club
Book Club at HPU Libraries welcomes the entire HPU community—students, faculty, staff, and alumni—to participate. Once per semester (spring, summer, and fall) we meet to discuss our latest text. All book selections are available as freely accessible eBooks in HPU Libraries' collection. Book selections span a range of genres, subjects, and formats, but will uniformly provide platforms for consciousness raising. The book club aims to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion among the HPU community.
Book Club at HPU Libraries is predicated on the idea that reading, whether fiction or nonfiction, is a constructive process that better equips readers to practice creative and critical thinking in all areas of academia, and is furthermore meaningful in its own right. It is part of HPU Libraries' initiative to create a space for readers to connect with one another, exchange interpretations and ideas, and build richer insights into texts, and both our shared and divergent experiences.
The book club began in the spring 2020 semester. Join us for a good read and virtual discussion.
Fall 2021 Meeting
TBD. When we choose our fall semester book and set the meeting date, we will email the HPU community, and post an update here!
Note: Not all books are available within the HPU Libraries collection. We will certainly research your suggestions to see if they are within the collection in accessible formats and/or available for us to purchase.
