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!
In November Low Maintenance Book Club will be reading selections from Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed. We will be reading "Like an Iron Bell,"How You Get Unstuck," "The Future Has an Ancient Heart," "Tiny Revolutions," and "Tiny Beautiful Things." Some of the themes and topics in this collection are very heavy, so feel free to skip or substitute an essay. Please join us on November 29th at noon. You are welcome to read either the 2012 or 2022 edition. We have several copies available in our library, and it should be available in most public libraries.
The meeting will be held over Zoom, so make sure to RSVP to receive an invitation link the morning of the 29th. We hope to see you there!
