The Presidents’ College and Alumni Engagement at the University of Hartford are sponsoring The Silent Book Club, a.k.a., The Introvert’s Happy Hour. The Presidents’ College extends the University of Hartford’s educational mission by engaging the adult population of surrounding communities in the intellectual life of the campus. Newcomers are encouraged to bring a favorite book and perhaps a favorite friend. There is no pressure to say something profound (or to say anything at all).

At the beginning, there will be thirty minutes to mingle, grab a drink, and sample hors d’oeuvres. Then, everyone will read quietly for an hour. The club will end with a half-hour to chat with other lovers of the written word – unless your own book keeps you riveted. The club will “liberate” the library after hours, with its cushy seats aplenty and its beckoning shelf of New Releases. Come find your next dream book at The Silent Book Club meeting on September 23 from 6 – 7 pm in the Harry Jack Gray Center L213 – KF Room. There is a $5 admission fee plus the cash bar, for more information contact [email protected]
