Book Club

The Thomas University Book Club began in the fall semester of 2003 under the sponsorship of the English department.  Under Dr. Bonnie Woodbery’s guidance, the book club has tripled in attendance just in the last three years and has garnered the support of several superb discussion leaders from TU, FSU and the Thomasville community.  Discussions focus on books of current interest as well as on the classics.  The book club meets once a month in the Campus Center on TU’s Forbes Campus.  Refreshments are served.  For more information, please email Dr. Woodbery at
