Care for a little literature with that lunch?

Bluford Library hosts Lunch & Literature conversations monthly, typically in the library’s second-floor seminar room (although the next one actually will be in the Faculty Dining Room).  From the library’s Lunch & Literature blog:

“Our next Lunch and Literature meeting will be on November 9, 2010 at 12:30pm. For our last meeting of 2010, we’re shaking things up a bit. Rather than all reading the same book, we’ll each come prepared to talk about a book that we have recently read. Hopefully this session will give us some ideas for holiday reading! We’re also planning a change of venue: the faculty dining room.”

A nice opportunity to grab your lunch and engage in a stimulating conversation.  You can get more information at the Reference Desk.  Of course, you can get more information on just about anything at the Reference Desk, but the reference librarians actually organize the Lunch and Literature program, so they’ll be especially happy to tell you about it.  Or you can click on this link for the Lunch and Literature blog.
