Osher at Dartmouth Course Books

We are happy to work with instructors and students to obtain books for Osher at Dartmouth courses and lectures. The list of books below is for the Fall classes (September 16 - November 15, 2019) organized by instructor. 

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.
