Humanities Center Book Club
In conjunction with Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson’s virtual visit to Miami University on September 9, the Humanities Center is organizing faculty and staff small-group discussions around her 2020 book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Both Wilkerson’s visit and the book club coincide with next year's Focus Program (formerly “One Year/One Theme”) on Race and Racism.
The Humanities Center will provide a free copy of Caste to the first 50 faculty and staff members who express an interest in participating in this book club, which will meet on the afternoon of Thursday, September 2, the week prior to Wilkerson’s talk. Participants will be randomly divided into small groups of five or six at the event itself. Participation is open to any and all interested faculty and staff members at the university.
If you already own the book and simply wish to participate in this discussion without receiving a free copy, you are of course more than welcome (and no RSVP is needed at this time).
Thursday, September 2 at 5:00pm to 6:15pm
