How do I get a copy?

To ensure free and equitable access to the books we’re reading, we’ve decided to use ebooks from the Edmonton Public Library’s Freading database. This database provides users with access to ebooks without wait times.

If you do not already have an Edmonton Public Library card, register for an L-Pass and use your CUE ID card to access EPL’s resources.

Why do we have a book club?

As part of the CUE Wellness Initiative, Wellness Is Here, we invite you to join our book club to gain the benefits of recreational reading and build connections with other students, staff, and faculty.
