The NNLM Reading Club Presents is a continuing series of online presentations and discussions by authors on topics related to health and medicine. Each session will feature a reading from the author, a discussion of issues related to their book and an opportunity for audience members to ask questions. Authors will be selected by organizers of the NNLM Reading Club based on monthly topics of the club like Heart Health, Digital Health Literacy, Health Equity and Infectious Diseases. The occasional series promises to offer engaging and diverse looks at health and medicine that library staff can use to spark enlightened discussion in their communities.
