Asian American Book Club

I am excited for this new book club! They’ve selected Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being as the first book to read over the winterim.

[important]Our book club offers all members of the Dartmouth community the unique opportunity to engage in meaningful and thoughtful literary discussions that delve into a variety of cultural, political, social, and personal issues related to the Pan Asian experience. This book club is a collaborative partnership made possible only with the support of the Office of Pan Asian Student Advising within OPAL, Asian American Studies, the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity, and the Dartmouth College Library.[/important]

The Library does have one copy, but it’s checked out at the moment. However, there are more if you look in the Borrow Direct catalog! The Howe Library also has a copy that’s checked out, but the Norwich Public Library has one that’s available.
