Staff Book Club


If you enjoy reading books, thinking about books, or talking about books, then join with other staff members as we get together for dinner and conversation (mostly about books!).

FAQs

When do we meet?
Four times a year, twice in the fall and twice in the spring

What do we read?
The members nominate, vote and select the books

Where do we meet?
In a restaurant that is related to the theme of the book (loosely interpreted of course)
We try to find locations that aren't far from campus. Last year, for example, the staff book club met at a "haunted" restaurant in downtown Plano when we read The Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill for our October selection. We met at BJ's Brewhouse for our February selection because the main character ran an underground brewery out of an Irish castle.

What time do we meet?
5:00 PM

How long do the meetings last?
Usually an hour to an hour and a half

What if I can't meet during one of the four scheduled meetings?
No problem, we'll see you at the next meeting

Here are the books for the upcoming meetings:

February 19th: The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
April 29th: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Orphan TrainAll the Light We Cannot See



Summaries :


The Orphan Train:

Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?


All the Light We Cannot See:

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
