Online Book Speed Dating - this week!

Are you ready to make a love connection...with a good book?

Join our very own book matchmakers (and a special guest from the College of Science & Engineering Ambassadors) as they lead you through fast paced book reviews on a variety of genres and subjects. They will even send you a checklist ahead of time so you can mark your favorites as they go through them. If you still haven’t found “the one,” the book matchmakers will save time for on demand recommendations based on your interests. 

Register in advance and you will get the Zoom link sent to you the week of the event.

Event hosted in partnership with CSE Ambassadors.
