Virtual Event

Back in 2008, the members of MIT Spouses & Partners Connect read and discussed this book together. This year, MSPC wants to invite you to read this book again.
Our plan is to read one chapter per week, starting on January 31st. Jennifer Recklet-Tassi, the program manager, will be sharing her thoughts about the book in the MSPC Facebook group. Please find a couple of book Zoom discussion meetings below.

So let's get started! You can find copies of The Namesake in the usual places you buy books and at your local library. Try the ebook or an audiobook. Consider buying it at "Thrift Books".

Chapters 1-4: Starting January 31; Zoom book discussion on February 18 at 12 pm. 
Chapters 5-8: Starting February 21: Zoom Book discussion on March 11 at 12 pm.
Chapters 9-12: Starting March 14: Zoom Book discussion on April 1 at 12 pm.
