In GFCF, we encourage students and faculty to invest in their personal and cultural development while they are building their academic expertise and research skills. Below find great sources to build both inspiration and imagination. Regent Bookstore Manager Bill Reimer is constantly in search of new, exciting, prize-winning literature. The selection offers a wide-ranging, robust, life-giving service to the whole UBC community. There is also a great selection of CDs of talks by art, literary and film critics such as Alan Jacobs, Ralph Wood, Leland Ryken, Iwan Russell-Jones and Jeremy Begbie. And of course you can find many of your favourite C.S. Lewis books. You will be a richer person for visiting the Regent Bookstore at Gate One. Many of our previous UBC talks are also sold there.
