The Exchange Book Club

The book club is starting again! Our chosen piece of literature is "The Little Prince" by French aristocrat and aviator, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This book is a whimsical collection of reflections on life, cleverly disguised as a children's book. With around a hundred pages, the task of the club this year will be deeper thinking, and won't require as much of your time! We will be meeting every other Thursday to discuss what we've read throughout the fall semester.
