FOR STUDENTS:

Book Club
Book Club creates a space and a community for students who are interested in literature of any kind. We want to appeal to anyone who has a passion for learning and would like to share that passion with others. We meet biweekly to discuss the books we are reading. Books are chosen based on whatever the group wants to read!

Honor’s Social Justice Book Club

The Honors Social Justice Book Club strives to serve as an "idea lab environment" where students can educate themselves and each other through reading and discussing books pertaining to social justice issues. Through reading these books and engaging in intellectual conversations regarding social justice, the club hopes to inspire honors students to create a more antiracist environment on campus as well as in the greater Fairfield community.
