Book Club Discussion NEW!
ACOEM's COVID-19: The Saga Continues: Successful Strategies for Keeping Safe at Work
Virtual Symposium will feature an epidemic-themed book discussion. Join fellow attendees for a discussion of Albert Camus' The Plague
, led by Drs. Glenn Pransky and Amy Behrman during the "Book Club" virtual discussion hour after both days' sessions.
Published in 1947, the book explores the moral and social implications of a catastrophic outbreak, primarily through the eyes of a physician trying to provide both care and public health guidance to an angry frightened population. Although you may have read this superb novel in college, or even high school, we believe it resonates more powerfully now. The Plague
is widely available from libraries and book sellers in print, electronic, and audio formats.
