The NYU Skirball Book Club has met in our theater’s lobby, as well as online. It’s a great place to discover new books and chat with new people.

This fall, we’ve paired each of the curricular themes in our Fall 2022 season with a complementary text – including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Our Book Club picks are the five winners of the 2021 National Book Awards. Each book shares themes or concepts with the curricular theme and performances. Consider it a cross-genre take on comparative literature.

For our first zoom meeting, we’ll be discussing Jason Mott’s Hell of a Book – in conjunction with these shows.

Learn more about the book & shows below, and RSVP to join the conversation.
