Laurentian Book Club | St. Lawrence University Alumni

Laurentian Book Club

Join the Laurentian Book Club, a virtual community aimed at connecting you with fellow alumni, parents and friends who enjoy reading, lifelong learning, personal growth, novels and other books.

Participation is free! 

The book club will connect through a private forum where all participants can discuss the current book and network with each other.  Joining is completely free, you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.  The book club will read one book every two months so that you'll have plenty of time for each book.
