TU Book Club to discuss 'The God of Small Things'

The Thomas University Book Club will feature a discussion of Arundhati Roy’s book “The God of Small Things” at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23.

“The God of Small Things” is the first novel by Indian writer Arundhati Roy. It follows the experiences of fraternal twins as 7-year-olds in India in 1969 and in 1993 when the twin are reunited. In addition to their tumultuous childhood, the book also provides insight into Indian history and politics of the late 1960s.

The discussion will be led by Dr. Bonnie Woodbery, an Associate Professor in English and Humanities at TU. Woodbery has taught at TU for 14 years. She holds a Ph.D. in British Literature and Critical Theory from Florida State University. Woodbery also directs the TU Book Club. In 2015 she was named TU’s Professor of the Year.

The meeting will be held in Classroom C inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus, at the intersection of Millpond Road and Pinetree Boulevard.

The TU Book Club is part of Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU). Led by Dr. Bonnie Woodbery of the English Department, book club meetings are held once a month at TU and feature discussions on books of current interest as well as the classics. Book Club meetings are open to the public, and refreshments are served. For more information, contact Woodbery at
