UVic Humanities Book Club

Humanities Book Club

The UVic Bookstore and the Faculty of Humanities invite you to join the Humanities Book Club. Held monthly at the UVic Bookstore, meetings aim at open and candid discussion of both fiction and non-fiction books. It starts up again in October 2013.

It's flexible - join us for one or all of the books. Simply register in advance for this unique book club as there is a maximum of thirty participants per book to ensure ease of discussion. Registration is free and based on a first-come, first-served basis.

To register please call 250.721.8315 or email specialo@uvic.ca   Please indicate if you will be attending all or just one or two specific dates.

Book Club meetings take place on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 pm at the UVic Bookstore. Light refreshments will be served. A big thank-you is extended to everyone who has volunteered to moderate.
