Packer's Alumni Book Club

The Alumni Board launched a new book club this year for all Packer alumni. The book for the spring semester was The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. The novel takes place in the south, starting in the 1950s and follows a set of African American sisters as they live two distinct lives. One lives as a Black woman and the other passes as white.

Packer Alumni from across nearly seven decades joined together to discuss the book, its themes, and their personal takeaways. The Packer Alumni Book Club is a growing group, and hopes you can join for the next discussion in the spring. To join the official discussion and email list please email
