Event Description:

This fall we invite you to attend the Common Read Book Club, a unique opportunity aimed at building community connections. Common reading programs rest on a simple idea: that reading the same book brings people closer together as a community by creating common ground for discussion. All incoming first-year students at Grinnell College have been asked to read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. Reading the same book during the summer gives incoming students, who often come from very different backgrounds, a shared experience. We are excited to expand this program to include both college students and community members alike. We hope you will join us!

You are invited to attend one or all of the sessions!

Book Club meetings will be weekly on Mondays from 6:30-7:30pm from Sept 17th- Nov 26th
