Rick REading a book


During your time at university, you’ll have lots of reading to do for your courses. But one of the hallmarks of university-educated people is that they read widely outside of their academic studies.

The Jackman Book Club is an opportunity for St. Paul’s students to engage in some quality leisure reading and to chat about what they’ve read with other students.

Six of our staff members have selected a book for this year’s list and have agreed to be the discussion leader for that book.

Copies of the book will be available for you through the Jackman Reading Room.  The Club will meet in the early evening on the final Thursday of each month.  (Details to follow)

If you would like to be part of our book club, please add your name to the link provided here. We look forward to seeing you Thursday!
