Presenter: Jan Zauha

  • Dates: First Mondays, Jan to Jun 2017 (see dates below)
  • Time: 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.
  • Location: Pilgrim Congregational Church

Participation: This book discussion group is offered free to Wonderlust members. Registration is not necessary.

Obtaining books is the responsibility of each participant. The Country Bookshelf, a Wonderlust partner, will carry the books in the series and they may be available at other retailers or your public library.

Wonderlust will again offer its popular Wonderlust Book Discussion Program, made possible by a grant from Humanities Montana. Registration is not necessary, nor is attendance at all sessions, though it is encouraged to enhance the individual’s experience of the literature and enjoyment of the discussios.

The books were chosen by a group of English and Literature professors who are Wonderlust members. The books for the year are listed below.

Jan Zauha, associate professor and MSU librarian, will be the discussion leader for each of these programs. She has extensive experience in leading book discussion programs and makes each session lively, informative and interesting. We are fortunate to again have Jan Zauha as the professional book discussion leader for our programs.

MSU Wonderlust is a high-quality community resource for lifelong learning for the Bozeman area.  Here is university-quality instruction by experts in a huge number of subjects, some multi-week courses, some one-off events.  These offerings come free of homework, exams, or papers: The MSU Wonderlust experience is just a chance to learn new things or review things we’d already studied.  It's also an opportunity to meet people with a wide variety of interests.

The Winter/Spring offerings begin with a reception at the Pilgrim Congregational Church from 4 to 6pm.  It's a chance to meet with the course instructors and side-trip presenters; find out more about their plans.
