Our connection to Dartmouth—and our passion for knowledge and discovery—continue long after graduation.

The new Dartmouth Book Club is designed to feed that passion, bringing together alumni, parents, and friends in an online forum open to all to discuss a popular featured book and join a conversation with its author.

The club’s first book will be Choke: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To by President Sian Leah Beilock ’76a. Club members will read Choke over the next few months and discuss the book’s insights and takeaways in the Dartmouth Book Club’s online forum.

We’ll meet on March 6 for a virtual conversation featuring President Beilock, Haldeman Family Director of Athletics and Recreation Mike Harrity, and Mary Lou Aleskie, the Howard Gilman ’44 Executive Director of the Hopkins Center for the Arts. A breakout session will wrap up each event.

We will announce a new book by a Dartmouth author each quarter, allowing you plenty of time to read the selection and participate in the reader forum. The club will explore a wide range of titles by Dartmouth authors, from thought-provoking contemporary topics to personal development and perhaps a thriller, just for the fun of it.

The second book in the series will be On Juneteenth by Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard University and Dartmouth College Trustee Emerita Annette Gordon Reed ’81 P’15 HON’21, who will be in conversation with Matt Delmont, Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor of History.

Join the Dartmouth Book Club today and share a rewarding conversation with other lifelong learners who love a good read and a good conversation. Membership is free!
