Alumni Book Club – New Look and New Book

The UFV Alumni Book Club has a new look and feel.  Facilitated by UFV alumna and avid reader, Michelle Vandepol, club members get to connect with fellow book lovers, enjoy lively discussions during our virtual group discussions and be part of a learning community.


Our first reading period starts on November 15th with Happy Sands”, by Barb Howard. Full of humour, sharp observations, and surprisingly uncomfortable lawn chairs, Happy Sands is a highly entertaining and poignant story of summer vacation gone all-too-predictably wrong. From beach bonfires to the search for Moby Trout, the mythical monster fish of Cornflower Lake, this novel is for anyone who’s spent a disappointing day at the beach.


Need more incentive to join the Club? You could win a $100 gift voucher from the UFV Bookstore by participating in our first read, including the virtual group discussions to enter to win!  $100 to order items online and have them shipped to your house!
