Welcome to the Book Club!
Do you love reading? Can't wait to start your next book? Love chatting about the books you've read?
We have just the thing!
The FCSA Book Club hosts five sessions across the academic year, where we discuss our thoughts on the books we read. The sessions are completely free to take part in.
If you want to get the chosen book for free from the FCSA, you have to be a Totum Premium cardholder. You're more than welcome to buy the book yourself or borrow it from the library, but Totum is a great discount app for students that is probably worth signing up for anyway.
The FCSA also has free bookshelves on campus for students to browse through and choose from. You can leave your old books for someone else while taking home a new collection for yourself!
If you would like to join the Book Club or learn more about our libraries, email email@example.com.
A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.
Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.
When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he's given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days.
But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn.
An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours.
