Guest Author Visits

The USM Community Book Club meetings are held on a monthly basis at various locations on and off campus.

The Book Club is open to parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, and current and retired faculty and staff. This year's Book Club theme is Guest Author Visits, and we'd like to encourage you to join us for a year of dynamic speakers on campus and around the Milwaukee area. 

We are also continuing our inter-generational book conversations of selected books; last year we partnered with a local retirement community in shared discussions. This year we plan to team up with our Upper School student book club. Please contact Laura Klein, Upper School Librarian, at lklein@usmk12.org if you are interested in joining us. 

The USM Community Book Club invites you to join us for all our events!
