Join us for the kickoff of a faculty book club series focusing on a wide range of experiences and identities using current literature. This will hopefully lead to other recommendations and other diverse voices into the future.

Purpose: Allow opportunities to meet other Marquette faculty and others who instruct students, read recent literature with cultural meaning, and build community membership across campus.

Meetings will be held Fridays from Noon-1:15. Lunch will be served.

Please RSVP in LibCal through the CTL homepage calendar or by emailing ctl@marquette.edu.
Books will be provided to the first 15 registered.

NOTE: You do not need to attend all of these, you can register individually.
