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 Thursday June 27th at noon in Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio) The Edge.  

We'll be discussing the 2019 Duke Summer Reads selection There There. It tells a powerful story of urban Native Americans confronting alcoholism, depression and unemployment amidst the historical backdrop of U.S. subjugation.

 

Light refreshments will be served, and you're welcome to bring your lunch.  Copies of this book are available through the Duke Libraries (printonline and  e-audiobook) and from the Durham County Library (printlarge format printebook e-audiobook and audiobook on CD).
