The SLC Language Exchange Program is excited to partner with the SLC Writing Program to launch our latest initiative: Re-Home Your Books! Through this endeavor, we aim to tap into the love of literature that exists on this campus to further cultivate a robust reading culture. Together, we believe in the power of the written word to foster greater understanding amongst our global community. We invite you to share the books you love to explore this power and help expand the written world!
This semester, we are looking to gather contemporary works of fiction to add to our growing collection. See below to learn how you can contribute your selections!
Extended Deadline: we are now accepting books until May 3rd!

Please fill out this form if you would like to be included in our list of contributors or if you would like to complete a book review.
Book Review Instructions
Submit a book review to let others know the impact your chosen text has had on you, and why they should read it next! Reviews will accompany books on our VèVè Community Bookshelf during our Book Party, so it’s the perfect chance to share with our global community how your given text has shaped your world, and how it can expand ours in turn.
Each review must include…
The book’s title and author
Three words that describe the book
A quote from the book that left a lasting impression on you
How the book has impacted you and why you believe it should be read by others
Participants who submit reviews are also eligible to win special prizes and recognition at our Book Party, so be sure to check out the below “Awards and Recognition” and “Save the Date” tabs for more details!
Awards and Recognition
As a thank you to those who contribute to our goal of connecting our global community through literature, participants who fill out this form will be included in our list of contributors and honored at our Book Party!
