UCSB Library is excited to launch summer book clubs to bring the campus and community together to connect with others who love literature and engage in peer-led discussions on interesting topics.
The summer book clubs will focus on the five books nominated for the UCSB Reads 2022 shortlist, which will be announced in mid-June.
Both student-only book clubs, as well as campus and community book clubs, will be offered. The Library will provide a limited number of free books on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority given to UCSB students.
If you are a UCSB student (undergraduate, graduate, or recently graduated) and are interested in serving as a discussion leader, please fill out this interest form linked here.
UCSB Reads is an award-winning campus and community-wide “one book” program led by UCSB Library whose goal is to bring the campus and community together to discuss important issues raised by a book.
Every summer, as part of the selection process, a committee of faculty, staff, students, and community members choose the next UCSB Reads book from a shortlist of engaging, interdisciplinary, and intellectually stimulating books by a living author that can be incorporated into the UCSB curriculum during the winter and spring quarters.
