BW Alumni & Friends Book Club

 

The Office of Alumni Engagement is pleased to provide a virtual book club for Baldwin Wallace alumni, family, and friends. Are you an avid reader who would like to re-connect with other Yellow Jackets for Life? Whether you live within an easy drive from campus or far away, the virtual book club is a new way for YJ4Ls near and far to connect, while learning about new topics and worlds contained within the selected titles. 

Members of the book club enjoy a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, related to social issues, psychology, business, and the environment and more. Through an online forum moderated by our partner PBC Guru, book club members post and share insights based on prompts throughout the 10-week reading period. Book club members also get to vote on titles for subsequent reading periods. Recent titles explored by the book club include Amity and Prosperity, Shackleton's Way, Two Gentlemen in Moscow, and Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World. 

Participation is completely free for Baldwin Wallace alumni, emeriti and retirees, current parents, and faculty and staff (you just need to obtain a copy of the book).

The Winter 2020 reading period for our newest title, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb, began on January 9. New readers may join anytime

Happy reading to our alumni and friends!
