You've Gotta Read This: Student Book Discussion

Reading for fun shouldn't stop just because you're in college. Selected from books suggested by professors in Musselman Library's annual summer reading guide, You've Gotta Read This!, these discussions are a fun, easy way to take a break from class reading and enjoy a new book with others. The first 12 students to sign-up for each discussion receive a free copy of the book.

Alif the Unseen



The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Tuesday, October 28 from 7:00pm-8:00pm
Browsing Room,
Main Floor Musselman Library


"It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.

Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

In superbly crafted writing that burns with intensity, award-winning author Markus Zusak, author of I Am the Messenger, has given us one of the most enduring stories of our time." Book description courtesy of the publisher.
