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 Tuesday April 16th at 5:30 pm in The Edge Workshop Room The Edge.  

To close out the semester, we'll be discussing three selections from David Sedaris' newest collection of personal essays, Claypso:

“Why Aren’t You Laughing?”
“Now We Are Five”
“A Number of Reasons I’ve Been Depressed Lately”


Light refreshments will be served. Copies of this book are available for checkout from Duke University Libraries and Durham County Library.  We also have an audiobook through Overdrive. 
Please RSVP for this event
