We’re excited to announce the Bobcat Reads Book Club — an online community where you can read and discuss books on a range of topics in the company of your fellow Bates alums. It’s free to join—all you’ll need is a copy of the book under discussion!
Current Book Selection:
Bobcat Reads will be actively discussing Beauty by Christina Chiu ’91 from January 6 — March 10, 2022. Continue to check this page for updated information on future book club selections.
Here’s how it works:
- The book club will connect through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other.
- We’ll dedicate roughly two months to each book, so you’ll have plenty of time to finish.
