The Honors Book Club provides both a social and intellectual outlet for University Honors students.
The Honors Book Club is open to Honors students in all majors and years— and it is this variety of perspectives that makes the conversation about books so interesting.
At the beginning of each semester, members nominate books they’d like to read and two to three selections are made by popular vote. The club meets bi-monthly, which allows each book to be discussed in part over the course of several weeks. With certain selections, such as The Thieves of Manhattan and The Virgin Suicides, the club combines a discussion of the literature with watching and discussing film.
Two members of the Honors Book Club serve on the First Pages Committee, helping to select the book that incoming students will read as they join the intellectual community that is Northeastern.
