Big Read Book Discussion Wed 14 Jan 2015 6:30 pm

The second Big Read book discussion of The Things They Carried by O’Brien starts tomorrow evening, 6:30 p.m., at the Lansing Community Library, 730 1st Terrace, Suite 1, Lansing, Kansas.

Questions to think about:

  • In the list of all the things the soldiers carried, what item was most surprising?
  • Which item did you find most evocative of the war?
  • Which items stay with you?

Leading the discussion: Sister Rosemary Kolich, English Professor, St. Mary University.

A 1980 Saint Mary College grad, Sr. Kolich never dreamed as a student she would one day be teaching at her alma mater.

“I had excellent teachers as a student at Saint Mary. They truly engaged us. What was so transparent was their love of teaching and their commitment to us as both students and individuals. I hope I model the same for my students.”

I plan on attending the discussion tomorrow evening and I hope to see you there.
