The Deep Read: NYC Salon

April 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm  |  Lot 15 inside Black Tap


Meet Humanities Dean Jasmine Alinder and UCSC faculty members for a special evening to learn about the Deep Read, this year’s featured book, and how you can get involved. The Deep Read, hosted annually by THI, invites curious minds to delve deeply into books guided by the expertise of UC Santa Cruz scholars. This year, we’re reading and thinking about Trust, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Hernan Diaz.

Our evening will feature light bites and a limited selection open bar. The first 50 guests will receive a copy of Trust to take home.

Don’t miss this chance to connect with fellow Slugs, engage with literature, and participate in this year’s Deep Read. Everyone is invited.
