BW Alumni & Friends Book Club


The Center for Philanthropy and 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 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 environment and more. Through an online forum moderated by our partner PBC Guru, book club members post and share insights based on prompts throughout a multi-week reading period. Members may read all the titles, or just the books that interest them the most.

Book club members also get to vote on titles for subsequent reading periods. Recent titles explored by the book club include Two Gentlemen in Moscow, Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, The Vanishing Half and The Midnight Library.

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). New readers may join anytime

Happy reading to our alumni and friends!
