The UT Health Science Center Briscoe Library and the San Antonio Public Library Forest Hills Branch are joining forces to start a new NPR (National Public Radio) Book Club as a community engagement project. There are many community issues that can benefit from engagement utilizing a book club as a platform for interaction and conversation. The club will meet once a month from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at either the Briscoe Library (room 4.074, the Collaboratory) or at the Forest Hills Library (5245 Ingram Rd). An NPR reviewed book will be featured at each meeting.
Do No Harm by Henry Marsh has been selected for the first meeting on September 17th, 6 -7 p.m., held at the Briscoe Library.
Do No Harm provides unforgettable insight into the countless human dramas that take place in a busy modern hospital. Above all, it is a lesson in the need for hope when faced with life’s most difficult decisions.
A few copies are available at the Briscoe Library on a first come, first served basis. Other copies are available through the San Antonio Public Library. Contact Peg Seger for more details at (210) 567-6398 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those interested in taking part in this project can stop by either library to pick up a bookmark with dates, times, and location information.
