GCC Reads is an organization on campus open to students, faculty, and staff who like to read and discuss literature. For Spring 2016, GCC Reads has chosen The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. Students can participate as much or as little as they like, and membership comes with a free book!
Meetings and book distribution begin the week of February 2nd. Head here to pre-register.
About the Book:
Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.
This improbable story of Christopher’s quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.
Hopefully I can attend one of the meetings but the awesome part is that I already have the book. I got it at a thrift store of all places. How coincidental is that! Looking forward to the discussion. I’m inspired!!!
