Hello CWBA members! I am honored to take the lead for the CWBA Book Club. My goal is to select books that challenge our thinking and aid in our shared desire to grow as humans and attorneys. Our non-fiction book selections will be posted on the 1891 blog. To facilitate discussion, I may post questions about our selection or supplemental reference materials in the book club forum. One other way to engage will be during our bi-monthly zoom hosted by the CWBA. However, if you are not comfortable participating online, feel free to reach out to me offline to chat more about the selection. I hope you find value in the book club and I look forward to feedback, good or bad.
Best, Amy Petri Beard
