Our DCU Virtual Bookclub

Connect with the DCU community through the love of reading! 

From February until May, DCU is hosting a virtual monthly book club for our staff community. A live book club event will take place online at the end of each month, where the featured writer will join us to talk about their book, writing life and much more. They will also be answering your questions! 
There’s no cost to join, all you need are the books. Whether you borrow a copy from the library, buy your own print copy, download to your tablet, or access it via Borrowbox, the format is up to you!
