“Ruined Readers” Book Club

January 1, 2023 - March 31, 2023

“Ruined Readers” is the official book club for Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, based off the famous slogan from Fr. Jack Morris that volunteers will be “Ruined for Life.” We offer both in-person and online meetings across the country as well as a self-reflection guide for individuals. Each round is inspired by one of the four values of JVC Northwest: Community, Simple Living, Social & Ecological Justice, and Spirituality/Reflection. There are opportunities to host a book club, participate in a club near you, or receive a self-reflection guide. All Former JVs, former volunteers from other programs, and friends are welcome to join.

This round, our book selection is Rest is Resistance by Tricia Hersey, based on the value of Simple Living. We recommend beginning the book in January, and gatherings will take place in March (day/time dependent on each host). Register to host or participate on our website.

Ruined Readers Book Club is organized by our Alumni Engagement Coordinator, Laura Keating. Please contact Laura with any questions at [email protected].
