The ILI Global Book Club

This summer, we’ll be exploring a new way to connect with each other as we launch ILI’s first-ever, global book club!

Through a series of 5-6 sessions (in successive months) we’ll select a timely (and hopefully)  riveting read and meet virtually with the author to explore the theories and ideas behind each book, reflecting on ways we may be able to apply them professionally or on a larger scale. Each book club session will be moderated by a knowledgeable and lively host and will be limited to 20 participants to make room for real and robust conversations with the author in question who will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss what lies within the pages and beyond!

As some of you may be aware, our Executive Director, Dr. John H. Falk, published a new book this fall – The Value of Museums: Museums Enhancing Societal Well-Being which we believe is the perfect book to pilot our new book club.

Beginning on Tuesday, May 17th at 11 am EST (or the previous day if you are in Asia or Australia; sorry, trying to find the best time for a Global effort is hard! ) and continuing on the 3rd Tuesday (or Monday in Asia or Australia) of every month, we’ll be spending an hour with Dr. Falk talking about this thought-provoking book. We hope you’ll join us!

We look forward to learning more about: What you found interesting, What was unclear to you? What really resonated. How do you see well-being playing out in your institution and your community and how we can use the ideas in this book to improve museums
