Literature Circles/Sherwood Forest
Student activities at John Tyler are about more than just clubs. The College also offers student the opportunity to participate in literature circles in the fall and spring semesters and an annual literary review.
The College’s Literature Circles are informal groups that select several books to read each semester. The groups then get together for relaxed, wide-ranging discussions of the books. Participants are welcome to read just one or all of the books selected each semester.
