Two RPCVs starting a professional-interest book club.
A volunteer from Morocco 2010-2012 and the DR are creating a professional-interest book club focusing on non-fiction books related to international development, human rights and social justice. Our first book will be Poor Economics by Abhijit Banerjee and Ester Duflo (http://pooreconomics.com/). Our first meeting will be an informal gathering at the house of my friend on Saturday, June 8th at 11am. Discussion about the book will be over brunch.
It's a great way to keep informed about the international development community.
For more details please contact Molly Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
