Mission Possible: SFU Grad School Edition

Book Club Mission

Summertime is the perfect time to relax in the long afternoons with a good book. The Book Club Mission lets you discover some new reads and connect with members of the SFU community.

SFU Reads is a virtual book club hosted by SFU Alumni to connect, read and discuss a wide range of books, with a focus on personal and professional development, Canadian authors, non-fiction and more. SFU Reads invites all members of the SFU Community to take part in this virtual book club. There is no cost to join and the discussion takes place in an online forum, which allows participation from wherever members currently reside and whenever is convenient.

Just pick up the book at your local library, download a digital copy or purchase a print version and you are ready to go!  

The next read they have on offer is The Leavers: A Novel by Lisa Ko (August 5 – mid September).
