This year for our annual reading list, we thought we would do something different. As most libraries and bookstores are closed we wanted to recommend things that you would actually be able to get a hold of — podcasts.
To heighten protective health measures around COVID-19 exposure, all UBC Library location at both Vancouver and Okanagan campuses will be closed March 20 at 5 p.m. until April 6 at 9 a.m.
As with everything else at UBC, on-campus libraries are making changes to their hours and lending services to adapt to COVID-19 concerns.
Here is a list of all the closures and cancellations for arts and culture events and centres on campus.
Now that reading break is done, there is only one thing to look forward to: Block Party. Well the gods must be smiling down upon us because the announced lineup seems like it will be a lit time.

On February 6, the museum will host Decolonizing Voices: A Celebration of Canadian Black HERstory, an event featuring a spoken word performance by Adelene da Soul Poet and a poetry reading and book signing with Chantal Gibson.
Playing with Fire was incredibly playful, especially thinking about how precious ceramics are. In context with the European Ceramics Gallery, Playing with Fire was a great reminder of what ceramic art can be and how people in the past found meaning in the art that we may now have lost.
Saturday will see the UBC Thunderbirds volleyball teams take on rivals Trinity Western in the third annual Pride Night.
Back for its second year and bigger than ever, Smash Comedy Festival is here to make space in the comedy world for those who are often sidelined. The festival looks to promote women, Trans and femme comedians in an industry often dominated by cis white men.
Taking place on November 20, TDOR seeks to honour the lives of Transgender people who have died and open a wider conversation on the impacts of transphobia.
Death is a heavy topic that all of us would rather not think about. So how do we celebrate a day dedicated to remembering violence and death in our community? For many, Trans Day of Remembrance is solemn day. A day to think on the friends and family they have lost, the ways the system has let us down.
Feeling like you have to give your legs a bit of a stretch?
The UBC archivists advised me that the beans of the western catalpa are “not edible” and also “not beans.” “Not edible as in will kill me?” I said. “Well they’re not poisonous but you shouldn’t-” and I didn't catch what they said as I had heard all that I needed and was gleefully thinking of how to prepare something with these long beans.
On September 30, UBC will honour Orange Shirt Day. The day commemorates victims and survivors of the Indian Residential School System and looks to raise awareness on topics surrounding the Schools.
