Join one of the Bay Area Book Clubs!

We're always looking to add new participants and welcome Carleton alumni, parents, and friends to join us for lively discussions, good food and socializing - whether you've finished the book or not!

Here are upcoming book selections and contact information for each club:

San Francisco/North Bay
September 26:  A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
To RSVP or join, contact Laura Effel '67.

Peninsula/South Bay
October 24:
  The Seashell on the Mountaintop by Alan Cutler '75
To RSVP or join, contact Alison Krafft Rempel '78 P'13.


We're setting up an email listserv for anyone interested in receiving information about our meetings. Initially there may be a flurry of emails as we get organized, and as time goes on the messages will primarily communicate information on time and location of upcoming meetings. As with all Carleton lists, there will be several format options (digest, text only, etc). You can subscribe to the listserv by sending an email to with the subject line "Subscribe peninsula_south_bay_book_club".


October 1:
