The ILI Global Book Club

In the summer of 2022, we explored a new way to connect through ILI’s first-ever, global book club!

Through a series of sessions, we met 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 was moderated by a knowledgeable and lively host.

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 was the perfect book to pilot our new book club.

We enjoyed learning more about what readers found interesting, and what really resonated. We discussed how readers see well-being impacting institutions and communities and discussed the ways in which the ideas in this book can be used to spark innovation and improvement in the field.

Future sessions may open based on interest.

In the meantime, if you’d like to explore the book you can find it here:
