Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Book Club

Hello! We are looking to have a book club towards the end of this calendar year, focusing on Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates ( It is a fascinating and challenging read, examining the role of race in American culture. We are hoping to get a sense of what days/times would work best for folks. If you’d be interested in joining us, could you please take a look at this Doodle Poll and offer times when you would be able to make it?

Sometime in late Spring of 2019, we’ll host another book club on Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance (, an interesting personal memoir giving insights into cultural aspects in impoverished Appalachia.
