Books without Borders
Throughout the year our group will be reading books, both fiction and non-fiction, that highlight the literature, culture, environment, and politics of various parts of the world. Each month a LSC-CyFair faculty member will introduce and facilitate the conversation in LRNC 215 on the dates listed below at 1:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Please pick up a reading guide from the 2nd floor reference desk the first week of each month. Join us as we delve into Books without Borders. Contact Patsy Brautigam (firstname.lastname@example.org) for book copies and more information.
