Newcomb Regional Book Clubs: Spring 2016

The spring 2016 book club selection is On Beauty by Zadie Smith, the 2016 Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence. Zadie Smith is the winner of the 2006 Orange Prize for fiction and is the celebrated author of White Teeth. On Beauty is the comedic story of an interracial family whose misadventures in the cultures wars serve to skewer everything from family life to political correctness to the combustive collision between the personal and the political.

Please note the deadline for fall book club applications is February 1, 2015.

Spring 2011 marked the first gatherings of the Newcomb Book Club. These evenings of friendship and conversation, open to all Newcomb and Tulane alumnae and alumni, proved to be so successful that the NAA continues to expand the number of cities hosting book clubs, offering fall and spring gatherings in selected cities.
