Fairfax's literary arts advocate organization Fall for the Book is bringing back the Well Library and relocating it to the Mason Club.
As part of the effort, the organizers held an open house on Monday, Oct. 23, which welcomed all members of the campus community. Three faculty members discussed and read from their work:
- Novelist Laura Scott
- Historian Jack Censer
- Sociologist Rutledge Dennis
The Well Library houses the research, scholarship and creative works of Mason's faculty, staff and alumni that are contained within the books they have published. It was started during operation of the Mason Inn, on Mason's Fairfax Campus from 2010-2013, and has moved to the Mason Club this semester as a project of Fall for the Book and the Mason Club management.
The Mason Club is located just off Patriot Circle, near the Rappahannock deck. It is located adjacent to the Hampton Roads student housing, and offers a space for university faculty, staff, alumni, and retirees to gather, collaborate, and dine.
Another open house is planned for Monday, Dec. 4, and then a round of three events will be held during spring semester. There will be free food, and a cash bar will be open.
For more information on The Well Library or being inducted, contact Kara Oakleaf, Co-Director of Fall for the Book: firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-993-3986.
