GPC Reads Archive: Home

Here you will find information on previous GPC Reads authors' visits with Georgia Perimeter College.


The purpose of this page is to preserve materials from several years of work on GPC Reads. Many thanks to the dedicated faculty and staff who brought these events to life, particularly Mary Helen O'Connor and Rebecca Rakoczy.

About GPC Reads

GPC Reads began in the Fall of 2010 with the intention of connecting those within the school and surrounding areas under a common love of literature, fostering an active and engaged community. GPC Reads is a book club open to students, faculty, staff, and community members with the goal of connecting our community of readers with authors so that the discussions begun in the campus-based groups can continue right on through the authors’ visits.
