Washington, DC Chapter

Professional Book Club

Are you interested in exploring influential ideas and sharing your insights with fellow information professionals?

Participate in our DC/SLA Professional Book Club!

Created in 2002, the Chapter’s Professional Book Club meets quarterly to discuss current, thought-provoking books of wide interest to our professional community. The goal of our discussions is to highlight each book’s unique points and useful takeaways through a lively exchange of ideas.  During the summer of 2012, the book club just celebrated its tenth anniversary.

Prior to each meeting, participants nominate recent, compelling books, and vote for the title they would like to discuss at the next gathering. See below for a list of all books read since the start of the group. Since 2005, the group has met at diverse Metro-accessible restaurants recommended by participants.

Do you know of a great book we should discuss at an upcoming meeting? Have a question or comment? Please send your suggestions and questions to: Jessica Fomalont.

Next Book:

April 26, 2016, The Shallows: What the Internet is doing to our Brains by Nicholas Carr (joint meeting with AGLISS)
