SUSTech Staff English Book Club: “Trust Exercise” By: Susan Choi


This semester, CLE instructor Matthew Jellick will once again host the Staff English Book Club, reading Trust Exercise by Susan Choi. Hosted online through digital platforms, a group of high-level SUSTech English staff students will meet every other week to discuss this National Book Award novel, sharing the messages provided through the narrative, and how it relates directly with their own experiences. Straddling the oftentimes murky lines between adolescence and adulthood, with topics ranging from drama, anguish and love, Trust Exercise examines the dichotomy of relationships and the gap between physical and emotional maturity.

This is the sixth Staff English Book Club hosted by Matthew and the CLE, continuing the aim to extend authentic language learning opportunities outside the classroom!
