The George Mason Book Club, established in December 1996, is actively encouraging staff and faculty members to join its discussions. The small but active club meets once a month to discuss nonfiction books.

The reading list over the last four years includes such titles as Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman, A Reporter’s Life by Walter Cronkite, Into Thin Air by Jonathan Krakaur, How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill, and The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang.

The group normally meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 5 p.m., but is very flexible regarding meeting dates, trying to accommodate as many readers as possible.

The selection for July’s meeting is the New York Times bestseller Wait Till Next Year by Doris Kearns Goodwin. This is an account of her life in Brooklyn during the best of the Yankees, Dodgers, and Giants. The group meets in the Johnson Center, third floor kiosk, on Tuesday, July 11, at 5 p.m.
