Maryland Psychiatric Society Book Club

The MPS Book Club facilitates members gathering to discuss a book, fiction or non-fiction, chosen by the group in advance. Meetings attract those who want to get together socially for a stimulating discussion and light refreshment.  To join, please email the MPS at mps@mdpsych.org.  If you don’t have time for meetings, we offer this list of past selections and encourage you to enjoy the books on your own.
