A Summer of Reading

May 31, 2016

With application season finally coming to a close and a new summer beginning, it is time for some fresh summer reading suggestions. This year, instead of giving a list of some of our favorite summer reads (you can find those here), the Office of Admissions invites you to join our online book club. Once a week this June and July, we will post a review of that week’s book and invite you to take the conversation further in the comments section and on Twitter. Below, you will find the schedule and title of each book, written by a Kenyon author or friend of the College. We look forward to a summer of great books and discussion!
