A bit more about Gryphons Read:

Gryphons Read is a collaboration between the College of Arts, the Office of the Provost, and the library, with major programming co-ordination from Student Experience. Each September, hundreds of students, faculty, and staff, participate in facilitated book clubs to read and discuss a book together, culminating into a campus visit from the author in early Fall. 2019 marks the 3rd year of the Gryphons Read program.
