Reading club meeting focusing on Native American heritage
Want to read something out of the ordinary? Join the Inclusive Reading Club, a monthly discussion group of short readings exploring diversity and inclusion from a multicultural perspective.
November’s meeting, which will focus on Native American heritage, will be held at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 in the McKillop Library’s second-floor curriculum resource center.
To access the readings, visit bitly.com/irc_readings. Participants will read chapters one and four of Louise Erdrich’s “Books and Islands in Ojibwe Country: Traveling Through the Land of My Ancestors” and short selections from “#NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women,” edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale.
December’s meeting, which will feature short readings from the 1619 Project, will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 7 in the McKillop Library, Room 109. The 1619 Project is a major initiative from the New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery.
Members of the Salve Regina community who are unable to attend club meetings are invited to share their thoughts on the club’s online bulletin board. The Inclusive Reading Club is sponsored by the McKillop Library and the Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention.
