Book Club


Come join the MCC Book Club to read and discuss important texts of the day! Book Club meetings are hosted at each campus where participants share their insights with each other and walk away with a deeper meaning of the story.  So consider taking a pause from all your studies to dialogue with fellow students, MCC employees and community members in a fun and supportive atmosphere!

Who Can Join the Book Club?

Mesa Community College students, employees, and community members are invited to participate. There is no charge - except the cost of the book. Each campus will have a few copies to give away on a first-come first-serve basis, and the MCC Library also places copies of the book on Reserve.
