2020 Alumni Book Day Chat
An exploration of The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
February 3, 2020
Book Day – a decades-long HM tradition when Upper Division classes are suspended for an entire day so that students, faculty, and administrators can examine and discuss one book they have all read – is now in its 25th year.
The 2020 Book Day selection, The Sixth Extinction by New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert, won a Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction and was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. Deemed "fascinating" by USA Today and "riveting" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Kolbert's book is a "combination of scientific rigor and wry humor that keeps you turning the pages” (National Geographic).
On February 3rd, HM alumni from across the generations will come together with select faculty and a panel of experts for an in-depth discussion of the themes and issues raised by the book, including mortality, mass-extinction, environmental change, and human nature. E-invitations will be emailed via eventbrite.com in early January to all NYC-area alumni. For more information, or to confirm that the Alumni Office has your current email address, please contact Kristin Lax, Director of Alumni Relations, at Kristin_lax@horacemann.org.
