Welcome to the Loaf Around Book Shop!
This shop was originally made for participants in the Loaf Around Book Club at the Bread Loaf School of English. As the school pivoted to a summer of writing in June of 2020, many Loafers gathered together digitally to discuss that which has brought generations of Loafers to the Mountain (either physically or figuratively): literature. To that end, a select group of students, faculty, and staff convened and created a series of micro-book clubs to discuss everything from Julia Alvarez to Yevgeny Zamyatin.
Since then, the club has now evolved into a more traditional book-of-the-month club, where each month, Loafers will gather together to discuss a single text as a group. Each month, Loafers will submit book ideas and vote upon the next read.
Here, you can find the list of texts each book club plans to read this summer; you can join the conversation by purchasing a copy here and supporting your local bookstore(s)! We look forward to talking books with you.
Yours in books,
The Loaf Around Book Club
