Alumni Book Club

Western University Alumni Book Club

Powered by PBC Guru

Book-lovers unite!

Connect with the Western community online to read and discuss a variety of engaging books of genres ranging from novels to memoirs, social justice to personal growth, and more.

Joining the book club is completely free and exclusive to Western Alumni and Friends.

How it works:

Pick up a copy of the book- at your library, Western’s bookstore or online to enjoy. Book club members will connect through a private forum where they can discuss the current book and network with each other. We will spend about two months on each book that take an average of nine hours to read cover to cover. If you have between one and two hours a week to read, you can make it happen! Plus, you don’t have to commit to reading every book—we’re not grading you.
