Coast Lines: Memorial University Book Club
Coast Lines has been developed to encourage Memorial University alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends to connect through a common love of reading and of literature from Newfoundland and Labrador.
The art deco-style rugged coastlines in Coast Line's visual identity represent a contemporary take on the nature, culture and economy of a changing Newfoundland and Labrador. This approach will reinforce that our province is a rapidly changing place that is not merely focused on traditional stories of times gone by, but an increasingly diverse province home to a variety of people from a variety of backgrounds. This in turn echoes Memorial University’s focus on inclusion and diversity.
The book club will also reinforce the importance of lifelong learning for Memorial University alumni, and recognize the role of Memorial’s hugely successful creative writing program based in the Department of English, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The program has played and continues to play a key role in the development and in the careers of Newfoundland and Labrador writers, most of whom have either graduated from the program or participated by taking classes.
