The Office of Diversity and Inclusion's Diversity Book Club is an organization for all Pitt faculty, staff, and students. Our organization focuses on authors and works that promote critical thinking within the realm of diversity and inclusion. Last fall we read Dean Larry Davis' Why Are They Angry With Us and at our inaugural event Dean Davis lead the discussion of his work. Last March in honor of Women's History Month we read Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay and hosted a panel discussion. This past June, in honor of LGBT+ Pride Month, the Book Club hosted a discussion based on the themes and topics in Benjamin Alire Sáenz's novel, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.
