President's Book Club


As a way for us to become better acquainted and learn more about our shared interests, I will be hosting a series of book discussions beginning September 24. This will be a great opportunity to spark stimulating conversations surrounding contemporary issues, issues that will inspire a deeper understanding of our perspectives and experiences.

Each month will be dedicated to one book. I will hold two 90-minute zoom sessions for 20 people, per session, to discuss the book. I invite you to select one of the three book options listed below and register for the session that best fits your schedule.

This book club is open to faculty and staff at Queensborough. If you prefer, feel free to just listen if you aren’t comfortable sharing your thoughts.

I also included links to descriptions about the books, so you can see which one catches your attention. I have thoroughly enjoyed all three books. Once you register with your street address, we will mail you a copy of the book. The September selection is less than 200 pages, and I selected date options later in the month so you will have time to read it at your leisure.

I eagerly anticipate meeting all of you and having our lively discussions!


- Dr. Christine Mangino
