"Let's Talk About It..."

Explorations of Faith in Literature

Religion has always been a critical element in establishing and defining our identity as Americans. In the novels of this series, we may come to see our world and ourselves with fresh eyes as we encounter faith differences and different faiths. Books for the first class will be available beginning January 7, 2013.

All programs are Mondays at 7 p.m. in the Hayden H. Jones Auditorium.
