How It Works

Alumni and friends like you sign up to receive alerts about upcoming books being featured in the program. For each book, there will be a private forum, moderated by PBC Guru staff, where all participants can discuss the current book while networking with fellow Hawkeyes. (You can create your forum profile during our sign-up process.)

The book club will promote one book every two months; all you need to do is find your copy (at your local library or bookstore) and join the discussion.

Our May to July Selection:
