A chapter has come to an end.

Thank you for taking part in the Nazareth Alumni Book Club! It has been a pleasure sharing exciting reads and thoughtful conversations with you. At this time, this chapter of our reading journey together has come to a close, as Nazareth University prepares new opportunities for you to connect with. 

We're excited to announce the launch of the Nazareth University Alumni Book Club! In this online community, alumni can connect with each other to read and discuss books on a range of topics. There is no cost to participate -- all you'll need to do is get a copy of the book and log in to connect with fellow classmates. 


How it Works

The book club connects through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend approximately 2 months on each book, so you'll have plenty of time to read. 

Why Should You Join?

1. An opportunity to connect and reconnect with your peers and classmates.

2. Engage in a lifelong learning community.

3. Reading is great!

Current book

tender land

Overview: 1932, Minnesota—the Lincoln School is a pitiless place where hundreds of Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to an orphan named Odie O’Banion, a lively boy whose exploits earn him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee, he and his brother Albert, their best friend Mose, and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own.
