The IAPC Book Club organises an online discussion on the famous book ‘Tuesdays with Morrie‘ by Mitch Albom. All are invited to join with us.
Date and Time
Friday, 25th September, 2020 | 7:00 PM | Moderator: Dr. Babita Varkey
The Book Club has been initiated with the idea of bringing the humanities to Science. The richness of the human experience and the understanding of life in its myraid hues, that is sometimes not possible with the outlook of science – with its stress on evidence and data. The arts – books, music, painting, dance, movies – all help the professional to look beyond the trials and tables and look at the trials and tribulations to understand human beings in all their regional, cultural and geographical variations. From existential angst to the simple joys of everyday living, the arts add richness to our lives beyond our textbooks and professional work.
The need for this connection was never so acute as during this unprecedented crisis which drains not only the energy but also raises some very important issues of purpose; and the need for support for healthcare workers. What better way to connect than over books?
Reading together, discussing , finding meaning- activities that offer solace and help build a community are the objective of this book club started by Dr Savita Butola, Hon. Secretary, IAPC.
The first book to be discussed online in the month of September is the classic – ‘Tuesdays with Morrie‘ By Mitch Albom.
The discussion will be organised as an online Zoom meeting. Those who wish to join book club discussion, please see the Zoom meeting details below.
