Topic for Fall 2018: Community Read: Ross Gay's Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude
Poet Ross Gay, winner of the Kingsley Tufts Award and a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Books Critics Circle Award, will be speaking on campus in October. In the weeks prior to his campus visit, we will meet 4 times to discuss his 2015 collection Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, a book that "studies the wisdom of the garden and orchard, those places where all—death, sorrow, loss—is converted into what might, with patience, nourish us." Discussion may touch on topics including nature and culture; environmental justice and sustainability; pain, joy, and hope, and more. This course has no papers and no grading.


Topic for Winter 2019: Community Read: Deal the Life of the Great Lakes
The Great Lakes hold one fifth of the world’s fresh surface water, yet they’ve been under threat by invasive species, water diversion projects, and more recently climate change. Dan Egan details the environmental history of one of our most precious local resources in his book Death and Life of the Great Lakes. Join us in small reading group discussion of the book over the course of winter term.
