A WISE private library

In our fall issue of Highlights, we shared with you our new co-location on Dartmouth Campus at 213 Wilson Hall right next to the HOP. We are settled in and have been busy making it a warm and welcoming place to meet with student, faculty, and staff survivors.

In addition to the amazing location, the space has a full set of bookshelves ready to fill! We are slowly building a modest library and are looking for recommendations.

Send us your suggestions here , or feel free to drop off a copy of your favorite book to us. We love learning about the books that are meaningful to you, and hope that the project expands horizons and sparks some curiosity!
A WISE guide to Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies by Lianne Moriarty offers a comprehensive exploration of gender-based violence. The novel and HBO series are both appealing and relevant in current pop culture. The stories are varied, complex, and full of opportunities to reflect.

Some themes in the novel emerge for us and we would like to share our WISE thoughts with you.  Click here to learn more .
