Please join us for our campus/community scholar-led book discussion series which, through a variety of genres, we will engage with literature and each other on the persistent and pressing topics of racism, war, and genocide.
Each book discussion event will begin with a short lecture from an MSU scholar. Next we break up into smaller groups, for discussions of the book, facilitated by graduate students. At the end of the evening, the full group reconvenes for final discussion and questions with the scholar.
Participants are encouraged to read the book ahead of time. Books will be “on reserve” at the MSU Main Library Patron Services desk, and available for purchase at Schuler’s and Everybody Reads.
