U.S.A. Book ClubFor those who love great books and salty snacks, the first ever book club collaboration between Skyline College’s U.S.A. Undocumented Students Club, the Dream Center and Skyline College Library proved a perfect ending to a long semester.

While the initial idea was for a student book club based on best-selling author Nicola Yoon’s The Sun Is Also a Star, a romantic novel whose protagonist is undocumented, the idea quickly attracted Skyline College faculty and staff. With U.S.A. and the Library providing free copies of the book, the group gathered in the Library to discuss the book during two meetings in April and May.

For a quick hour, all titles were scrapped as members gathered as equals to explore and critique themes, characters and plot. After the semester concludes, U.S.A. will sponsor a group trip to the movies to enjoy the just released film of the same title.
