TxWes Reads? What's that?

People may recognize The Book Thief before they know what TxWes Reads is. But this year they are the same!

The West library sponsors a campus-wide read every year called TxWes Reads. It's like a year-long book club.  You are encouraged to read the book then come to one or all of the programs designed around discussing the book's ideas and themes. This year’s book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
