12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m.
Cori Auditorium

This event is part of MLK Week

As we embark on the Spring semester, we are excited to invite you to participate in our book club on a platform dedicated to exploring and discussing literature that aligns with the value of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a whole person. The book club will meet monthly, and participants can expect to engage in monthly facilitated discussions on Patrick Parr’s book The Seminarian: Martin Luther King Jr. Comes of Age which is a must-read for anyone interested in the life and legacy of one of the greatest civil rights leaders in history. This captivating book takes you on a journey through King’s formative years, providing a unique perspective on the events and experiences that shaped him into the iconic figure he is today. With its engaging storytelling and meticulous research, The Seminarian is a powerful tribute to a man who dedicated his life to fighting for equality and justice for all.

At this kickoff meeting, we will distribute the book, and Dr. Mike Jones will provide information about the book. We will also discuss follow-up dates for meeting.
