The Library staff and the Women’s Studies Department at SAU would like to invite you to join us in some book discussions this fall.
I am the Central Park Jogger, which is the memoir of Trisha Meili and how she overcame the consequences of her attack in Central Park, will be discussed. Trisha Meili will be the keynote speaker later that week in Bettendorf at the Waterfront Convention center for the Family Resources Honor the Women breakast. The book is a gripping read and raises lots of important questions about race and class privileges.
Nov. 13, at 7:00 p.m., Women’s Studies Resource Center, Ambrose Hall Room 224. A book discussion about The City of Tranquil Light, written by Bo Caldwell, will be led by Owen Rogal, member of the English faculty. Women’s Studies is hosting the book discussion. Copies of the book will be on reserve and available for check-out at the Library.
Bo Caldwell will also be the Baecke Endowment for the Humanities Lecturer at SAU with Finding Faith and Fiction in China.
(Wednesday, Nov. 30, 7 p.m. Rogalski Center.)
Another book discussion to look forward to this fall:
Brave Girl Eating: A Family’s Struggle with Anorexia, by Harriet Brown. This book discussion will be cosponsored by the Quad Cities Eating Disorders Consortium and the SAU Counseling Center. Brown will be speaking at SAU in October. More information about this discussion will be posted as it is received.
