UCA English Club: A Novel Bunch

Who We Are

A Novel Bunch is our social organization for English majors, minors, grad students, and any student who loves stories of all kinds! That includes everything from novels and poems to film, graphic novels, and video games. Our goal is to promote community and conversation.


Our Activities

We have fun activities each year. Every fall, A Novel Bunch partners with Torreyson Library for Banned Books Week activities to celebrate our constitutionally protected right to read. In the spring, we have a party to honor our student award winners and inductees into Sigma Tau Delta (the International English Honors Society). In addition to these regular events, we take on service projects and do fun activities.

Our special projects have included:

  • Attendance at a sneak preview of the Arkansas Repertory’s production of The Grapes of Wrath
  • The club’s participation at an international Robert Louis Stevenson conference held at the Little Rock Library
  • A trip to Memphis to attend a production of Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer-prize winning drama, Wit
  • In fall 2021, we all went to see the new Dune film as a group

Who Can Join?

A Novel Bunch is open to any student who enjoys literature and stories of all kinds. You can be any major or minor at any level. No GPA or credit level requirement required to join!
