Alumni Book Club
July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022
We’re excited to continue the Berea College Alumni Book Club in a new and improved format! Over the next year, alumni will connect to read and discuss books on a range of topics and user-submitted ideas. There is no cost to participate – you only have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.
How It Works
The book club will connect through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network. To further the discussion, additional content, including articles, videos, Ted Talks, etc. will be provided to club members. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so you’ll have plenty of time to read.
1. Embrace Lifelong Learning: The facilitated book club will broaden your career and provide new insights to get results in making you more effective in areas including leadership, communications skills, and achieving a fulfilling life.
2. Reading is Good for You: Reading can reduce stress, help you sleep better, and improve your relationships . Did we mention it also makes you smarter? Reading increases your verbal intelligence, your emotional intelligence, and your creativity .
3. Connect with Fellow alumni, faculty and staff: Our book club will introduce you to fellow alumni across industries, generations, and geographies all while gaining different perspectives while reading the book. The network you will be building may help you with career advice, introduce you to new people, and find your next opportunity.
