Archer Book Club: Home

Welcome to the Archer Book Club, or the ABC!

Archer Book Club

Welcome! 

This is the informational page for the Archer Book Club, a digital book club for all University of Regina students, staff and faculty who are interested in conversing about selected leisure reading books and short stories.   Spring/Summer 2020 served as our pilot for the club, and we have been very pleased to continue meeting for three sessions per semester since!  Check out the archived meeting pages for general interest and reading suggestions.

Zoom sessions will be available with chat options.  Sessions will be moderated and any disrespectful behavior or harassment of any kind as per University of Regina policies will result in removal from the session.

Book Club Rules and Regulations

While the Archer Book Club is largely intended as a social gathering,  University of Regina policies regarding behavior and respect will be followed.  The University's Code of Conduct can be found online here:  https://www.uregina.ca/policy/browse-policy/policy-GOV-022-005.html

A few notes pertaining to the Archer Book Club meetings specifically:
1) Harassment, discriminatory speech, and/or inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated either at in-person meetings or Zoom meetings.
2) While open conversation is welcome,  the moderator/host will periodically direct the conversation back to planned topics related to the reading material.
3) Obtaining reading material is the responsibility of the attendee, and should be read prior to the meeting.  Library staff will offer suggestions for locating materials, but alternate editions at the discretion of the attendee are welcome.  Example:  If reading Dracula, online editions are available through the library but you are welcome to read your personal copy.
