The CFA Society of Chicago has recently formed the CFA Chicago Book Club and is looking for interested members. The Book Club is an excellent way for members to discuss financial literature with other members of the society. The Book Club will meet at the CFA Society of Chicago Office (conference call number will also be available for members not able to attend in person) to discuss the books read and pick new books for the next quarter.
