Book Club

Shrine Mont and the University of Virginia Press have joined together to create the Virginia House Book Club.  Each month a UVA Press Book will  be selected that focuses on place, people, and ideas that affect all of us.

Book club sessions will be monthly and will focus on one UVA Press Book each month. Each session will be moderated and will allow for questions and discussion in breakout groups. There will be a limit of 100 people per session through an online, no-cost registration form located in the monthly book web page.

Books can be purchased through the University of Virginia Press web site at a 30% discount using code identified with the monthly book page.

Contact Shrine Mont if you have any questions.
