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!
Since we won't be meeting in person this spring, we're making recommendations for books to add to your TBR pile! We're focusing on light-hearted and cozy reads. If you're interested in joining our email conversation and hearing what other members of the Low Maintenance Book Club are reading, contact Arianne Hartsell-Gundy (firstname.lastname@example.org), and she'll make sure you get added to the discussion. You can also see many of the titles being recommended under More Reading Suggestions.
We've canceled the April Discussion
This spring, the Low Maintenance Book Club will be reading selections from Claire L. Evan's Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet over three meetings. Spanning decades, this book profiles key figures who made advances in programming and technology that led to the online world of today.
