We are pleased to announce that the Book Club is coming back! Please join us for the next virtual Narrative Medicine book club journey starting April 5th 2021! Join us as we read together with weekly updates to our social media, our email list, and to our blog!
We invite you to join the discussion on any channel either by responding to those posts or by using #NMBookClub on your social media. In addition, we will hold two live virtual discussions on Zoom, see below for registration!
This spring we will be reading the 120 page novel Passing by Nella Larsen, first published in 1929, an “influential, if woefully under-read American classic” according to Parul Sehgal of the NYTimes. For more on the book please see here, here, and here. Also, unbeknownst to us, it seems the NY Times Magazine just chose this book for their March “T book club” pick, so you can also read more here and watch their conversation about it (maybe better after you’ve read the book!) here!.
We’ll be reading at a pace of two chapters a week, as follows:
- Week 1 – April 11-17: Part 1 Chapters 1&2
- Zoom Discussion: April 17th at 11AM EDT: Register Here!
- Week 2 – April 18-24: Part 1 Chapters 3&4
- Week 3 – April 25-May 1: Part 2 Chapters 1&2
- Week 4 – May 2-9: Part 2 Chapters, 3&4
- Week 5 – May 10-15: Finale
- Zoom Discussion: May 15th at 11AM EDT: Register Here!
For this round of the book club, we will be led by Derek McCracken and Carmen Price, two graduates of our MS program and the current faculty sponsors of our Social Justice in Narrative Medicine affinity group.
Looking forward to reading with you!
