Low Maintenance Book Club

Who We Are

The Low Maintenance Book Club provides space for members of the Duke community to connect over reading.  Realizing how busy people are (and how much reading you probably have to do for classwork and research), we focus on quick reads.  We will read texts like short stories, graphic novels, interesting short essays, poetry, etc.  We hope you will join us for some fun and thought provoking conversations!

Upcoming Discussions

Our next book club will be on February 21st at 6:00pm in The Edge Workshop Room The Edge.  We will be  reading the novella Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang, which won the Nebula Awards' Best Novella in 1999.  More famously this is the story that the recent movie Arrival is based on!  You can find several copies of the short story collection that contains this story at our libraries, including an e-book version.  Durham County Library has a copy.
