Professional Development Discussion & Book Club

Spring 2015 Book Club

Please join us as we examine

Hard Choices

By:  Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hilary Clinton

“All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. "Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become."

In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted.

Anyone is welcome to join us for casual discussions.

Book Club will meet monthly, Fridays January 23, February 20, March 27, and April 24, 10-11:30 am in the Provost Conference Room
