Darwin Book Club


The book club hosts three sessions each year, beginning in January, June and September. During each session, the group meets every other week to discuss the book selection. The group is open to any educator in the St. Louis area interested in gaining more knowledge about the field of evolution.

ISP Faculty Fellow David Kirk, along with the current Kirk Teacher Fellow, lead the biweekly discussions.

How to Join

At the beginning of each session, the book club opens up to new members. If interested, contact Paula Smith for more information.
