ASC/Cowles Library Book Club

 

 The University Book Club will continue to meet virtually and in person (as is safely allowed) through the 21/22 academic year!  We like to read 4 books together each year, usually scheduled for a casual discussion around the "breaks" during the year.  This year, we are also adding 2 additional "toolkit for life" books in partnership with Human Resources!

Our books and meeting times for this year are listed below - please feel free to reach out to sara.heijerman@drake.edu, or dan.chibnall@drake.edu if you would like to participate in any of these discussions, or would like to join our email notification list!
