Rensselaer at Hartford Employees Form New Book Club
Several members of the faculty and staff at Rensselaer at Hartford have formed a new book club that meets every two weeks in the Cole Library at the Hartford campus. So far, the club has read The Nanny Diaries; The Golden Compass; Eat, Pray, Love; The Cowboy and His Elephant; and is currently reading Atonement. The initial idea for the book club came from Rebecca Danchak, M.S. ’78, director of admissions, who approached Carol Flynn, Acquisitions/ILL Librarian in the Cole Library, in September 2007 about starting a book club. Books are selected for reading by members of the club, who encourage a wide range of topics for consideration and diverse opinions during book discussions.

Pictured at right are book club members: (top row, left to right) Traymeshia Story, evening receptionist, administrative services; Flynn; and Jennifer Carone, telecommunications and help desk specialist, technical and information services; along with (seated, left to right) Elaine Papanic, program specialist, Rensselaer’s Centers for Professional Development; and Adam Hechler, senior analyst/PC system administrator, technical and information services. Not shown are Danchak; Angela Buonannata, assistant registrar, Office of the Registrar; and Gregory Sparzo, M.S. ’93, senior program manager, marketing.
