The MCC Library is partnering with the Counseling Department to host the Thunderbirds Read Book Club in spring 2022. The mental and emotional trauma of the pandemic has taken its toll on everyone; we could all use a little inspiration to reset our thinking to a positive mindset. This year's book club theme focuses on happiness, resilience, self-care, and mental well-being.

We received over 50 book recommendations from MCC students, staff, and faculty. The list has been narrowed down to the top 5 recommended books. Which book do you want to read? Use this Book Club Selection form to cast your vote. Everyone is welcome to participate!

The winning book will be announced the week of December 6th. Book Club activities will take place in March and April of the spring 2022 semester.

About Thunderbirds Read

The MCC Library hosts Thunderbirds Read Book Club to promote literacy, create community, and facilitate conversation and engagement around social issues. Book Club activities strengthen literacy through shared reading while providing participants a chance to interact and converse in social settings. Participants share altering perspectives, viewpoints, and personal stories while critically engaging in literature of varying themes and reading levels. In order to provide an enriching and universal experience, students, college employees, and community members are all invited to participate.

Meetings are hosted at each campus where participants share their insights with each other and walk away with a deeper meaning of the story. Consider taking a pause from all your studies to dialogue with fellow students, MCC employees, and community members in a fun and supportive atmosphere!
