The UWS Alumni Book Club is an online community where UWS alumni, friends, faculty and staff connect with each other to read and discuss books on a wide range of health and professional topics, as well as member-submitted recommendations.
How it works
The book club will connect through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so you’ll have plenty of time to read. As a member, you are able to participate in some or all of our book selections as your schedule allows. There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.
Why should you join?
There are three main reasons we hope you’ll be excited to participate in our book club:
1) Connect and network with your fellow peers
2) Be a part of a lifelong learning community
3) Reading benefits your health and well-being
UWS staff voted for our first book selection (the next book will be selected by book club members). Check it out:
Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World
In Together, the former Surgeon General addresses the overlooked epidemic of loneliness as the underpinning to the current crisis in mental wellness and offers solutions to create connection and stresses the importance of community to counteract the forces driving us to depression and isolation.
