Reading The Reader

The Alexandria Campus Book Club met on campus for the first time on Thursday 19 November to discuss Bernhard Schlink's The Reader. Discussion focused on Hannah's decision to go to jail rather than admit her inability to read, and a more general discussion on shame in western culture -- especially in matters of educational accomplishment.

Although several book club members also saw the film, no one took a bath at the meeting.
