The final meeting of the Thomas University Book Club for the 2017-18 academic year will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, April 23, in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Dr. John Fenstermaker will lead the discussion on Ernest Hemingway’s first and most famous novel, “The Sun Also Rises.” Written in 1926, the novel follows a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to the Festival of San Fermín in Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls and the bullfights.
