ALC Book Club: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Friday, November 24 in Room 1
“Jane Eyre”, written by Charlotte Brontë, will be the focus of this week’s Book Club. There are so many themes in this timeless classic: society and class, education, morality, the supernatural and the meaning of home. It will be a great discussion on these topics and more. Everyone is welcome to join us.
English Lunch! Please join us this Wednesday at 12:30 in the ALC garden.
For those who haven’t come to English Lunch before, the purpose is to have informal conversation practice and have a drink or lunch at the same time. You can bring your own lunch or can buy something from the kiosk.
ALC and ALIF students, library members, and other university students are welcome to participate.
ALC-ALIF Book Club: “Black Boy”
Friday, Nov.10 at 3 PM in Room 1
For this week’s Book Club discussion, we will be reading Richard Wright’s book, “Black Boy.” The author tells how his life began with struggles due to hunger and poverty, and then he experienced unfair treatment due to the color of his skin. Rather than discourage him, his problems led him to believe that all people should treated equally, regardless of race. Join us for another great discussion! Everyone is welcome.
ALC-ALIF Book Club: “Exit West”
Friday, Nov. 3 at 3 PM in Room 1
Mohsin Hamid’s latest book, “Exit West”, which the Guardian calls a ‘magical vision of the refugee crisis’, made the shortlist for the 2017 Man Booker Prize. As our book for this week’s Book Club, it centers on a very contemporary romance, situated in the dangerous context of the westward stream of refugees, as the title indicates. Join us for another fascinating discussion.
