The Low Maintenance Book Club is meeting again in October! This book club aims to provide 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 will focus on quick reads. We will read texts like short stories, graphic novels, interesting short essays, poetry, etc.
This month we will be reading several stories from James Tiptree Jr.’s Her Smoke Rose Up Forever. We will have one copy on reserve at the Perkins Library Service desk. It can be checked out for 72 hours. Tiptree’s fiction reflects the darkly complex world its author inhabited: exploring the alien among us; the unreliability of perception; love, sex, and death; and humanity’s place in a vast, cold universe.
Light refreshments will be served!
When: October 24th at 6:00 pm
Where: The Lounge @ The Edge
Stories we will discuss:
- The Screwfly Solution
- The Girl who was Plugged in
- And so on and so on
Please RSVP here for planning purposes.
