Knight Time Reading Book Club

Join us for Knight Time Reading, featuring books that our faculty and staff have written or are currently reading and teaching in the classoom. Share your love of reading and explore different views and thoughts with fellow donors and Bellarmine staff.

Register and participate in either one or both of the book club offerings each year, and join your fellow 1950 Society members at Knight Time Reading!

We made the difficult decision to postpone Knight Time Reading 2020 in response to growing concerns about COVID-19.
