Literature Club returns to A&M- San Antonio
Stacia Joers, English senior and the newly-elected president of the Literature Club, says that the organization is resuming its hiatus and recruiting new members.
According to the university’s website, the goal of the club is to spread literacy to not only A&M-San Antonio, but to the surrounding community as well.
The Literature Club at Texas A&M University-San Antonio is an organization where students, regardless of their major, can join, network and talk about different genres of literature.
Although the Literature Club has been on campus since 2013, it temporarily disbanded because A&M- San Antonio was a transfer university at the time. The juniors and seniors in the club graduated, leaving no one to continue the club, according to Joers.
“We are more than just a book club,” Joers said. “If you want to discuss a book you’re reading, stuck writing an essay, don’t know where to go or need ideas, you can come to us and we’ll try to help.”
The organization is now making plans with other organizations to carry out events and spread word about the club.
“We’re working with the Guild of Geeks in making a comic book workshop in late March after spring break,” Joers said. “People can come and learn about comics and how to make them.”
The organization is also planning to host a theme night event in the Writing Center where students can write fantasy, sci-fi or any other genre.
“We’re also thinking about doing a Harry Potter theme night so people can come and write Harry Potter fan-fiction,” Joers said.
In 2015, the club organized a book drive collecting over 500 books that were donated to Seton Home residential facilities for young mothers.
Another book drive is planned for late April, according to Joers.
The Literature Club holds meetings every second and fourth Friday of the month in Room 203 of the Frank L. Madla Building.
