Osher at Dartmouth Course Books

Please note: Due to concerns about COVID-19, Osher Leadership has decided to postpone the opening of the Spring Term. Several classes will be held online. More information can be found on the Osher website.

We are happy to work with instructors and students to obtain books for Osher at Dartmouth courses and lectures. This list is for the Spring classes (March 23 to May 22, 2020).

The links (blue highlights) will bring you to the book pages for titles that are currently in print.

We have some books in the store; others need to be ordered and usually take less than a week, often only a day or two. "Special order" books are titles that are more difficult to get and are usually non-returnable.

We may also be able to find very specalized texts or out of print books though these requests take longer.

You may order via the website, or by email, or call 802-649-1114, or stop by the store - whichever is easiest for you! And we deliver to Kendal, the Greens, and Wheelock Terrace.
