ALA-SC is continuing to sponsor this fantastic lecture series that highlights “the good, the bad, and the pretty cool parts” of librarianship by inviting you to hear from real librarians working in various aspects of the profession. Those of you who attended the first lecture know the value of this experience and since the events are highly informal, feel free to drop in to listen as you can.

 

March/April Meeting of the ALA-SC Book Club

Thursday, April 4th at 5:00pm at Thornton’s Fenway Grill, 100 Peterborough Street

The second ALA-SC book group meeting will take place in the first week of April with the theme (as suggested at the last meeting) of time travel!!

Remember how it works? Each month, we select a theme and suggest a few titles based on that theme. At our monthly meeting, we start with a discussion on those books, but encourage everyone to bring their own book suggestions that incorporate the theme. At the end of our lively discussion, we create a Reader’s Advisory List for anyone looking for great, ALASC-approved book recommendations. The Reader’s Advisory list for the last meeting (Theme: Breakups) is now available here.

Since we are going to try to have this meeting off campus, please send a quick email to our Information Coordinator, Kristy Lockhart at kristy.lockhart2@simmons.edu, if you plan to attend (even if you’re not sure) so that we can ensure there is enough space.

April’s theme is “Time Travel”

Our suggested April titles are:

Time’s Arrow by Martin Amis

The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov

Timeline by Michael Crichton

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

The Accidental Time Machine by Joe Haldeman

Shoeless Joe by William Kinsella

The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

Blackout by Connie Willis

A Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones
