Read Between the Lions

While we’re apart, let’s read together.

Why Read Between the Lions?

Columbians are readers — it’s what drew so many of us to the Core Curriculum. Now, Read Between the Lions revives the communal reading experience that made up our days at Columbia. As part of Columbia Reunion, College alumni are invited to join this special program as we make time to read again while sharing the pleasures, insights and joys with one another.
