Using articles and selected book chapters, this summer the PEP Alumni Program is launching a virtual book club discussion to foster conversation between PEP students, the Danforth Campus community, and the greater St. Louis community. The goal of this virtual book club is to continue encouraging intellectual curiosity and conversation despite the limitations posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The book club will be structured as a virtual idea exchange where every two weeks a new reading will be distributed. During the two-week reading cycle, members will be encouraged to write short reflections or pose questions on the reading; these will then be exchanged between the communities, and each group will have the opportunity to respond to the reflections and questions posed by other participants.
All students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to sign up! You can sign up to join the reading group here. The tentative dates for the virtual discussion are June 22 – August 21. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
