Anyone with an interest in medicine, literature or history is invited to take part in Becker Library’s Special Collections Book Club. Every few months, we’ll hold a discussion about a novel that features some aspect of medical history, then look at the primary sources that bring the stories to life.
Reading group titles will be discounted the month before and the month of each meeting unless otherwise noted.
For more information, please visit becker.wustl.edu/news/read-along-with-the-special-collections-book-club/ or email Shane.
