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!
