This Club aims at encouraging its members to maintain and commence the good habit of reading books that are "outside of the box "and to expose readers to varying thoughts from national and international authors. Opportunities will also be available for promoting good reading habits, as well as socialization, holding discussions and debates, and cohesiveness between and among its members.
