What we’re about

Like books? Like to talk about life, happiness, and the occasional paper-cut from books? (or bruised toe for you kindle and nook readers.) This is the group for student & alumni.  We don’t follow one genre or one author but try to find new areas to campus into each month. We also don’t break the stories down, clinical piece by clinical piece. Instead we prefer to discuss the story in general terms and how it relates to us.
