Join us for a very special Evening with Anne Bogel on Thursday, November 7 at 6:00 p.m. in the AV Room at the Stone Event Center on Campus 805. Anne will be here for a casual conversation about reading, favorite books, and her life as a literary matchmaker. We'll even do a mini version of the podcast "What Should I Read Next?" with Anne helping one guest in our audience find books that fit their personal reading tastes.
You probably know Anne as "Modern Mrs. Darcy," the creator of a popular lifestyle and book blog, or as the host of the podcast "What Should I Read Next?" which just hit its 200th episode. Professionally, she's a writer and podcaster, but at heart she's a reader. Through her podcast, blog, and books, she acts as a literary matchmaker for thousands of readers just like you.

For so many of us, reading isn’t just a hobby or a way to pass the time—it’s a lifestyle. Our books shape us, define us, enchant us, and even sometimes infuriate us. Our books are a part of who we are as people, and we can’t imagine life without them. In this collection of charming and relatable reflections, beloved blogger and author Anne Bogel leads you to remember the book that first hooked you, the place where you first fell in love with reading, and all the books and moments afterward that helped make you the reader you are today.
