One Community/One Book 2013: Join the Conversation

Are you interested in receiving a free copy of this year’s One Community/One Book reading selection?

This year The Libraries, in cooperation with the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics, have chosen Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World for a One Community/One Book read.   Tina Rosenberg, the author of Join the Club, will be the keynote speaker at the CMH&E’s Community Service Learning Conference, which will take place on April 4, 2013.

The Libraries will offer three noon-hour workshops, January 28, February 4, and February 13, to support discussion group leaders and hosts. The workshops are open to faculty, staff, and students of the UT Health Science Center and members of the broader community who are interested in planning a discussion opportunity.

The workshops will be available on request in Harlingen and Laredo via V-tel.

Book discussions will be held throughout February and March, in the weeks leading up to Tina Rosenberg’s keynote address at the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics Community Service Learning Conference on April 4, 2013.
