Shelf Indulgence: St. Kate’s Staff and Faculty Fun Reads

Welcome to Shelf Indulgence!

Looking for a way to read some good books and connect with your colleagues this Summer? Participate in this Summer's Shelf Indulgence! We'll set a theme and make suggestions of possible readings - you make the final pick of what you want to spend your precious summer reading time on. Open to St. Kate's staff and faculty and co-sponsored by the St. Kate's Bookstore and the Library and Archives.

Join us on the 2nd Tuesday of each summer month from 4:00-6:00 pm. Themes and locations vary:

A: For sure! Come for the company and to get more suggestions of other books to read.
