Hello! Welcome to the Mary B. Blount Library Book Club page. All are welcome! Just read the book and join the discussion whether in-person or remotely. This book club has been designed to provide Averett students, faculty, staff, and community members with an opportunity to share their love of literature with others. The purpose of the meetings will be to discuss the books in a very casual way. The more thoughtful opinions that can be brought to the table, the better. Within this club we will explore many different genres of literature including classics, fantasy, general fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Please navigate through these pages for more information, and direct any questions to Jessie Ross, jdross@averett.edu, 434-791-5636.
