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 September 27th at 6:00pm in The Lounge @ The Edge .  We will be reading several stories from Sherman Alexie's Blasphemy.  We will be giving away copies to the first 10 people who register. You can find several copies of this book at our libraries. Durham County Library also has several copies.  This collection combines fifteen classic stories and fifteen new ones, so there is plenty of content for people very familiar with his work and people who are new to his style.

We will be reading these three stories for our book club: “Tonto and the Long Ranger Fistfight in Heaven,” “What You Palm I Will Redeem” and “War Dances.” 



Upcoming book: Her Smoke Rose Up Forever by James Tiptree Jr.  Date and other information coming soon!
