Middletown Book Discussion Title for July!

The MUM Book Discussion group will next meet on Wednesday, July 12 to discuss Jean Kwok's Girl in Translation.  We will meet at 12 pm in Room 124 in the Library. 

Here is a brief summary of the title, along with links to request the book from  OhioLINK and SearchOhio libraries (Just click "Request" and choose "Miami University" from the dropdown list.  Then enter your UniqueID and password, and the library from which you would like to retrieve the item):  

"Caught between the pressure to succeed in America, her duty to their family, and her own personal desires, Kimberly Chang, an immigrant girl from Hong Kong, learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles."

Read the book (or read something else interesting), then come along to our discussion to share what else you've been reading/watching/listening to/experiencing, and help us plan our future readings.  

Have an idea for a book to discuss?  Let us know and check out our page of past and future reads at
