Alumni Book Club

We're excited to announce the launch of the Nazareth College Alumni Book Club! In this online community, alumni can connect with each other to read and discuss books on a range of topics. There is no cost to participate -- all you'll need to do is get a copy of the book and log in to connect with fellow classmates. 


How it Works

The book club connects through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend approximately 2 months on each book, so you'll have plenty of time to read. 

Why Should You Join?

1. An opportunity to connect and reconnect with your peers and classmates.

2. Engage in a lifelong learning community.

3. Reading is great!

Current book


Overview: Structured around the doctor’s London murder trial in 1892, when he was finally brought to justice, The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream exposes the blind trust given to medical practitioners, as well as the flawed detection methods, bungled investigations, corrupt officials, and stifling morality of Victorian society that allowed Dr. Cream to prey on vulnerable and desperate women, many of whom had turned to him for medical help.
