Alumni Book Club

We’re excited to announce the launch of the new Saint Mary’s University Alumni Book Club!


Cover of From the Ashes by Jesse Thistle

In this online community, alumni can connect with each other and enjoy books from a range of genres. There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy (we encourage you to visit your local library!).

Our first selection for January-March 2021 is From the Ashes: My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way by Jesse Thistle. This book has received many acclaims, including being selected as the CBC Best Canadian Non-Fiction Book of the Year, an Indigo Book of the Year, a finalist of the 2020 Canada Reads competition and the winner of the Indigenous Voices Award. 

You can sign up to read our first book club selection at https://www.pbc.guru/smuhalifaxThe sign-up window for the program will close on January 21st, 2021.

HOW IT WORKS

The book club will connect through a private online forum where people can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend two months on each book, so you'll have plenty of time to read! With discussions taking place on an online forum, you can participate from anywhere in the world. Take part in discussions at your own pace and at any time that works for you! You can sign up and learn more here: https://www.pbc.guru/smuhalifax

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?

There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in our book club:

1) Connect with fellow alumni,
2) Be a part of a lifelong learning community, and
3) Reading is good for you!

Sign up today! 


The book club will be managed by PBC Guru. PBC Guru manages professional book clubs for companies and alumni associations and will be moderating the group to help make this program a great experience for all participants. Please email them at info@pbc.guru with any questions or visit their website at http://www.pbc.guru to see more of what they do.
