About the Leisure Reading Group

The FC Leisure Reading Group promotes reading for pleasure and provides students with an opportunity to interact with other students in informal meetings. Open to all currently enrolled students. Students vote on a book to read for the semester and everyone receives a free copy for the discussions.
