The Mercy and CNR Online Alumni Book Club

The Office of Advancement at Mercy College graciously thanks Dr. Harris Stratyner '77, H.D. '05, former trustee (2011-2016) and Dr. Lynn Stratyner for their generous donation of the Online Alumni Book Club. 

The forth book we are reading is Beartown by Fredrik Backman

A Woman of No Importance

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Mercy and CNR Alumni Book Club! In this online community, alumni can connect with each other and enjoy books related to lifelong learning, social issues, literature, psychology and other user-submitted ideas. There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.

How It Works
The book club will connect through a private online forum where people can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend two months on each book, so you'll have plenty of time to read. You can sign up and learn more here.

Why should you join?
There are three main reasons we hope you'll be excited to participate in our book club:

  1. Connect with fellow alumni
  2. Be a part of a lifelong learning community, and
  3. Reading is good for you! 

The book club will be managed by PBC Guru. PBC Guru manages professional book clubs for companies and alumni associations and will be moderating the group to help make this program a great experience for all participants. Please email them at with any questions or visit their website.
