The Spartan Book Club encourages alumni and friends to virtually connect with each other to read and discuss books on a range of topics. There is no cost to participate and a new book will be chosen approximately every two months — simply purchase the book or borrow it from your local library. The book club is open to all Spartans — alumni, faculty, staff and friends. You can join the book club at any time and do not have to participate in every reading session.
The Spartan Book Club is pleased to present What the Eyes Don't See — a live, virtual conversation with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, physician, activist and author. You’ll hear the story of how Dr. Mona stood up to government officials who dismissed the Flint water crisis and how she and a small team of advocates got the government to pay attention and take action.
Join us April 29 at 6 p.m. ET.
If you register before April 13, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a copy of "What the Eyes Don’t See."
There are no meetings of the Spartan Book Club - you can participate anywhere you have Internet access and on days and times that are convenient for you.
We will vote among several options each period and select a book based on participant interests. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so you’ll have plenty of time to read. You do not have to participate in every book reading and your level of participation in the discussion is entirely up to you.
