Summer Book Club meets in August

Join us for our second (and last!) meeting on Friday, August 19 at 12 noon. The book is Pym: A Novel by UH creative writing professor Mat Johnson.  A Booklist Review by Julie Hunt pronounces it: “Funny, insightful, racially important, Pym is a death-defying adventure and a probing examination of notions of race, even at the farthest ends of the earth. ” The Summer Book Club is co-sponsored by the UH Libraries and the Women’s Resource Center.  Refreshments will be provided.  The Summer Book Club is open to all UH students, staff, faculty, and affiliates.

Copies of Pym are available through the Libraries’ fabulous and free Interlibrary Loan service.  The Interlibrary Loan department will borrow an extra copy of the book from another library for you.  You can retrieve your copy at the M.D. Anderson Library’s service desk when it arrives.  Visit their website to set up an account.

Join us for the fun!
