What is the Quiet Book Club?
A chance to read a book, in quiet solitude, and then come together for a collegial discussion at the end! A no-pressure Book Club! Books are chosen based on its relevance to professional development or current topics of interest at Red Deer College.
We invite all RDC students, staff, and faculty to read the book and join us to share how the book has impacted you personally or professionally.
