Alpha Chi Omega Alumnae Book Club

Starting in February, Alpha Chi Omega will be hosting a book club just for alumnae! To sign up for the book club, join our Facebook group AXO Book Club. Each month, we will read a new book and have a virtual discussion via the Facebook group. Every few months, we’ll extend our virtual discussion to a live video conference where we can discuss the book “face to face.” We’re excited to offer a new opportunity for alumnae across the country to connect and engage based on common interests. If you have questions about the book club, you can email Hannah Harris, assistant director of volunteer management.

Dare to Lead by Brene BrownOur first book is Dare To Lead by Brené Brown. We’ll have an interesting discussion about what it means to be a brave leader and make a difference. In this book, Brené Brown challenges us to think about leadership not as titles, status or power, but rather as a way for leaders to hold themselves accountable for recognizing the potential in others and their ideas. She encourages the readers to be curious, ask questions, embrace difficult conversations and lean into vulnerability where it is necessary to do good work. We’ll talk about what daring to lead means in the context of your professional life, your personal life and your role as an Alpha Chi Omega.

March
Our book for March is The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life? Set in New York City in the late 1960’s, four siblings visit a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. What they learn shapes their lives. Benjamin explores the ideas of self-awareness, ambition, destiny and choice in a story that is deeply moving and pulls at the unrelenting ties of familial bonds. We’ll discuss the power of belief, family connections, and destiny with this exciting and captivating read!
April
Text Me When You Get HomeIn our April pick, Kayleen Schaefer explores the evolution of the modern female friendship in Text Me When You Get Home.
