SEPTEMBER MEETING NOTES

Christin Rude of the University Book Store in Mill Creek was our September featured speaker at what was a very well-attended event. Her topic was her top fifteen Fall books. She is a self-professed book nut, and is in charge of two in-store book clubs, one focusing on fiction and the other non-fiction. She talked about being from a family of readers, starting her first book club at age 8 with her little brother, and keeping a journal with a quote from every book she’s read for the past 10 or so years. 

Christin introduced us to a great mix of fiction and non-fiction, with subjects that ranged from historical fiction such as Christina Baker Kline’s intermingling of a 91-year-old’s hidden past and a troubled teen in Orphan Train to current day issues and events such as Nicholas Carr’s exploration of technology’s effect on the mind in The Shallows. The University Book Store was able to extend a 20% discount to Book Club members at the event, which was very generous. 

In addition to Christin’s warm and informative presentation, we enjoyed some very tasty refreshments courtesy of the Ecology Department. 

We have posted her recommended reads in the Club Library for your own reading or your department discussions. Find the file in the 2014-15 folder.
