READ TREE

 



Join the HSC leisure book club, Relax and Read, which is a complement to Read and Lead! 

Relax and Read is sponsored by the Robert M. Bird Society, with Library faculty facilitating the book club.

Book Exchange

In 2015 BHSL Staff created a Relax and Read Book Exchange on the 4th floor of the Library in the Recreational Reading area.  Turn to your left once you exit the elevator.  If you see a book in the exchange you'd like to read take it and if you have a book you're finished with leave it, it's that simple.  

Enjoy!

BOOK 1 FOR FALL 2020

Daisy Jones & The Six

Before We Were Yours book cover


Book Summary


There is something a little intoxicating about Daisy Jones and the Six. This is the story of a young, captivating singer who came of age in the late 60s/early 70s, all told as an oral history. The Six did not hit the big time until Daisy joined the band as their lead singer, but her presence brought along drama, intrigue, and a variety of tensions between herself and Billy Dunne, the leader of The Six. It’s best not to know too much about this book going into it; instead, allow the transcribed interviews from the band members (they weren’t real, but they seem real), and from those who tagged along during this great fictitious band’s run, to unspool the story for you.
