UAB BookTalk

Whether you are a UAB student, faculty member, or a member of the Birmingham community unaffiliated with UAB who just loves books, please join us at our monthly meetings for informal, insightful, and interesting discussions about books you probably won't get a chance to read and discuss in classes or other book groups.

Meeting Time: the first Tuesday of every month from 6:00–7:00 p.m.

Meeting Place: Henley Room, on the 2nd floor of Sterne Library, UAB Campus (see map)
