Events for 2015-2016

Andersen Library Student Book Club

Andersen Library Student Book Club features topics related to diversity and one book is discussed each semester. This Spring, we will be reading and discussing Redeployment by Phil Kay. Meetings will be held on Feb. 9, 16, and 23 from 5-6pm.

Feb. 9 - Books will be dispersed to participants (free copies). Discussion will focus on introducing the book and providing insight into what life is like for student veterans and active service members on campus. Many of our returning soldiers are fighting a war home that's unseen. The enemy is depression, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, suicide and addiction to medication prescribed to treat their physical & psychological wounds.

Feb. 16 - Discussion of the first half of Redeployment by Phil Kay

Feb. 23 - Discussion of the second half of Redeployment by Phil Kay

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided and are sponsored by Undergraduate Research and Honors Programs.
