The Faculty Commons Book Club will meet at noon, Thursday, Oct. 6, to discuss Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance authored by Angela Duckworth.

Beth Morling, professor of psychological and brain sciences, will co-facilitate the session with Agnes Ly, assistant professor of psychological and brain sciences.

Duckworth’s research has led her to propose that talent alone cannot build a foundation for success, that success requires “grit,” which she defines as “a special blend of passion and persistence.”

Limited free copies of the book will be awarded to participants based upon registration and winners will be contacted via email. In addition, printed copies and audio versions are available for loan from the UD Library.

The discussion of Duckworth’s book will be held from noon-1 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6, in Faculty Commons (116 Pearson Hall). Drinks and dessert will be provided. RSVP requested.
