Stanford Book Salon with the Stanford Alumni Association
Another event at the Farm! More info TBD…
A short background on the Book Salon program – in 2002, this online book group for Stanford alumniand friends was started by Diane Middlebrook, professor of English, emeritus, and each year, the program has grown in popularity. Currently, we have over 5,000 registered participants. Some alumni simply “lurk” to read other’s comments and others actively post thoughts and questions about the book.
