Unwin(e)d Book Club 2016-2017

The Friends of the Wright State University Libraries are proud to announce the 2016-17 Unwin(e)d Book Club titles and dates!

Join us at Winans in Beavercreek at 5:30 p.m. on the following Thursdays for this lively book discussion group. Unwin(e)d is not your mother’s book club. No topic is off-limits. Grab a glass of wine and some chocolate and we’ll bring the cheese and crackers!

September 8, 2016 – Weathering by Lucy Wood

November 10, 2016 – Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart

January 19, 2017 – Blackass by Igoni Barrett

March 9, 2017 – The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

This year’s diverse group of mostly-debut authors hail from the U.S., U.K., and Nigeria, and tackle a range of issues: family, race, violence, mystery, opportunity, greed, ghosts. Titles were selected based on their ability to challenge readers and drive discussion. If there is a theme that ties these novels together, it’s change – waiting for it, fighting against it, or making it happen (by force if necessary). Can we ever really change? You be the judge.
