ISSS Book Club

Welcome to the ISSS Book Club! The purpose of the book club is to explore the systems science literature in depth, so books are read over several months,  with monthly reading assignments of approximately 50-100 pages. Participants will have opportunities to both suggest books to read and vote on a selection of books. Meetings are on the third Thursday of the month from 12:30 – 2:00 pm Eastern Time.
