Campus Community Book Club

“Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.” – Jane Smiley, novelist

The Wellness Center is hosting a book club because reading, it turns out, can be beneficial not only for your physical health but for your mental health as well. Reading has been shown to do all of the following:

  • Reduce stress levels
  • Preserve brain health and lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and Dementia
  • Alleviate anxiety and depression
  • Help you fall asleep
  • Increase life expectancy
  • Boost happiness and overall life satisfaction

It doesn’t matter what you read or for how long: All genres can be helpful and even just six minutes a day inside a book can have positive benefits.

Visit our events page to see what we're reading next.

The Campus Community Book Club meets monthly on varying days from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom.

Email mariannesciucco@sunyorange.edu for an invitation to the next meeting. 

The club is open to all members of our campus community.

Participation is free. Books are not. Obtain at your library or bookstore.
