December’s DEI Book Club Pick

“Drug overdose had already taken the lives of 300,000 Americans over the past fifteen years, and experts now predicted that 300,000 more would die in only the next five. It is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of fifty, killing more people than guns or car accidents, at a rate higher than the HIV epidemic at its peak.”  – Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America

This month the DEI Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health, will discuss Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy as its December read.

The Book Club will discuss Dopesick on Zoom on Wednesday, December 7th at 12pm.

November’s DEI Book Club Pick

“Reforms that supposedly improve the current system run the risk of entrenching dangerous, violent, racist, classist, ableist, oppressive institutions–making them even harder to uproot. When captivity is perceived as kinder and gentler, it becomes more acceptable and less of an urgent priority to confront, even though it continues to destroy countless lives.”  Prison by Any Other Name: The Harmful Consequences of Popular Reforms  

This month the DEI Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health, will discuss Prison by Any Other Name: The Harmful Consequences of Popular Reforms by Maya Schenwar and Victoria Law as its November read.

The Book Club will discuss Prison by Any Other Name on Zoom on Friday, November 18th at 12pm. If you’d like to read and take part in the event, the Library provides access to an eBook version through EBSCO.

October’s Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club Pick

“I’m fundamentally a hopeful person, because I know that decisions made the world as it is and that better decisions can change it. Nothing about our situation is inevitable or immutable, but you can’t solve a problem with the consciousness that created it.”  – Heather McGhee, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together 

This month the Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health’s Diversity and Inclusivity Committee, will discuss The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together edited by Heather McGhee as its October read.

The Book Club will discuss The Sum of Us on Zoom on Wednesday, October 13th at 12pm. If you’d like to read and take part in the event, the Library provides access to an eBook version through EBSCO, with a limit of one user at a time.

July’s Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club Pick

“This moment cannot be examined purely through the lens of medicine or ‘hard’ science. We must also look to history, social science, journalism, and other ways of investigating the world. Like any other phenomenon, Covid-19 must be examined within the proper social, cultural, political, and economic context. This doesn’t just satisfy an abstract academic curiosity. It helps us to understand where we are, how we got here, and hoe we can arrive at transformative solutions.”  – Marc Lamont Hill, We Still Here: Pandemic, Policing, Protest, and Possibility 

This month the Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health’s Diversity and Inclusivity Committee, will discuss We Still Here: Pandemic, Policing, Protest, and Possibility edited by Marc Lamont Hill as its July read.

The Book Club will discuss We Still Here on Zoom on Wednesday, July 14th at 12pm. If you’d like to read and take part in the event, the Library provides access to an eBook version through EBSCO, with a limit of one user at a time.
