Presidio Book Club - "Nursing Civil Rights: Gender & Race in the Army Nurse Corps"

Saturday, May 19, 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM At Presidio Officers' Club Offered by:

Presidio Trust

The traditional book club has been reimagined as an inclusive public program that anyone can take part in, whether or not they’ve read the book. Enjoy contextualizing remarks by Presidio Trust historian, Dr. Barbara Berglund Sokolov, and then participate in or just listen to the facilitated discussion of both the book and the general topic that follows. Think of this as part book club, part graduate seminar, part Parisian salon.

 All titles are available for purchase at the Presidio Visitor Center.

Saturday, May 19, 1 to 3pm
