It has exposed me to books I might not have chosen on my own. Good, thoughtful, thought-provoking, and insightful literature.”

I enjoy it because it keeps me reading intellectually stimulating material that I may not have known about before. The end-of-book discussions encourage me to dig into a book more deeply than I might do when reading on my own for pleasure. I know my Trinity alumni friends are equally interested in continuing their lifelong learning.”
