hoteljpg-1a1f429819d37708The Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, October 14 to discuss God’s Hotel: A Doctor, a Hospital, and a Pilgrimage to the Heart of Medicine by Victoria Sweet (nonfiction, 432 pp,  2013). We’ll begin at 6PM with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, October 12 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“San Francisco’s Laguna Honda Hospital is the last almshouse in the country, a descendant of the Hôtel-Dieu (God’s hotel) that cared for the sick in the Middle Ages. Ballet dancers and rock musicians, professors and thieves—“anyone who had fallen, or, often, leapt, onto hard times” and needed extended medical care—ended up here. So did Victoria Sweet, who came for two months and stayed for twenty years.” – Amazon.com

“Others have written about the relationship between time and medical care with similar eloquence and urgency, but the centuries of perspective that Dr. Sweet brings infuse the point with unforgettable clarity.” –The New York Times

“A radical and inspiring alternative vision of caring for the sick.” –Vanity Fair

Welcome to the Brown Community in DC!

Dear DC area Brunonians,

We are excited to be stepping into the leadership of the Brown Club of DC (BCDC). It is a privilege to be able to build upon the great legacy left to us by our predecessors and we look forward to continuing the legacy of service to this community and to Brown.

This organization exists to serve your needs and we take that responsibility seriously. We are hitting the ground running, with a variety of social, networking and service events planned for the summer. We hope that you will make time in your busy lives to participate in the activities that interest you.

We also recognize and appreciate the loyalty and enthusiasm of Brown alums all over the DC Metro area, and we want to provide opportunities for all of you to share your talents and interests with us. Many of our best events started as suggestions from alums just like you. Please connect with us at any of these activities, or contact us directly by email or social media if you have ideas or comments that you’d like to share regarding future events and initiatives.

We look forward to a year of fellowship, learning and fun!
