You're invited! April Book Chat on April 29

April 19, 2021

For the month of April, in celebration of Earth Day, we'll be reading books on the environment!

Whether you want to go deep into the science of climate, or you have a book of poems that pay homage to the beauty of the earth, we encourage you to bring some of the titles you are reading to our next Book Chat on Thursday, April 29 from 2:00-2:30 PM.

As a reminder, you can come having read books from any genre, fiction or non-fiction. You can share a book that you're reading, but even if you haven't read anything you're welcome to join us for a casual conversation and hear what other folks are reading!

A calendar invite has been sent to all staff and faculty, and you can access the Zoom information here on April 29.

We hope you can join us on April 29!
