Join the Ohio State Alumni Book Club

Our Book Club is Growing!

Our virtual book club is open to all alumni. Join fellow Buckeyes in a private online forum to discuss the selected book. Whether you are already an avid reader or looking to get pick up reading in the New Year, this book club has something for everyone.

Participants will vote to select each book. The following genres were picked as the focus of the 2020 year. We'll announce future choices in the coming months.

  • August 6–October 8, 2020: Classics
  • October 15–December 17, 2020: Science fiction/fantasy
  • January 4–March 11, 2021: Ohio Reads (Books that take place in Ohio)

Membership is free. You simply need to borrow or purchase a copy of the book.

Previous selections have included:

  • Dopesick by Beth Macy
  • Grit by Angela Duckworth
  • The Outsider by Stephen King
  • The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
