Sayre Lit Club Starting Semester with Albom Book


The Literary Club at SWOSU at Sayre is kicking off the spring semester with a new book, Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.

The club meets at 2 p.m. on Mondays in the Lit Pit, Mackey Hall 136, for snacks and discussion.  Students who cannot come to the meetings may participate online at the Literary Club web site, which may be accessed from the SWOSU at Sayre home page.

Each semester the Lit Club votes on and reads two books.   This semester’s first selection is the Albom book.

Faculty sponsors for Literary Club are Judy Haught, Landry Brewer and Terry Ford.  Other faculty and staff also participate side by side with the students, making for interesting discussions and unique perspectives.

Literary Club was organized in the fall of 2001 as a response to the general melancholy that settled over the campus after the September 11 terrorist attacks.  Approximately 10 faculty members and students began meeting weekly to read and discuss.  Since then, Literary Club has grown to 35 participants. 

Haught said fellowship and the pleasure of reading combine to make Literary Club a successful campus organization.
