Penn Professional Staff Assembly's Book Group

If you were a part of the Penn Professional Staff Assembly's book group you would know "How to Think Like Leonardo DiVinci" and wake up every morning saying "I Feel Great and So Can You". You would have visited "The Red Tent" and read letters from "Gallilio's Daughter". You would have been transported back to WWII and heard tales from "Black Company". These are the books the PPSA has read and loved (and not loved) since they first formed in April.

If you are interested in reading books that span all interests and sharing your thoughts with an intelligent, fun, and friendly group of people, join the PPSA book discussion group. We meet the second Wednesday of the month from 12:15 - 1:15 in the Bookstore on the second floor.

On August 8 we will discuss "How to Think Like Leonardo DiVinci". September's reading is "The Feast of Love" by Charles Baxter. In a re-imagined Midsummer Night's Dream, men and woman speak of and desire their ideal mates; parents seek out their lost children; adult children try to come to terms with their own parents and, in some cases, find new ones. The The Feast of Love is rich, juicy, laugh-out loud funny and completely engrossing.

Group members receive a 10% discount at the Bookstore toward the purchase of the "book of the month". To register contact ppsa@pobox.upenn.edu

Interested? Join us. If you have not read the book you are still welcome to stop by and hear the group's thoughts.

Look forward to seeing you
