Rutgers University Alumni Book Club: Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield

Share This:

Now is a great time to join the Rutgers University Alumni Book Club, a free program for members of the Rutgers community. We are now more than 1,850 readers strong! The book club can help you continue your journey of lifelong learning through reading both entertaining and informative titles and encountering authors you might not ordinarily read.

We will begin reading Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield on January 6. You can find the book online, at your local bookstore, or at your local library.

Once Upon a River is a glorious tapestry of a book that combines folklore and science, magic and myth. Suspenseful, romantic, and richly atmospheric, the beginning of this novel will sweep you away on a powerful current of storytelling, transporting you through worlds both real and imagined, to the triumphant conclusion whose depths will continue to give up their treasures long after the last page is turned. 

Join now, obtain a copy of the book (or audiobook), and jump in on the discussion with other alumni.
