Employees can 'Read with Historians'
By Jayden Hewitt
The Reading with Historians program at LCC is a great way for staff and faculty to learn outside of the classroom, as well as read and discuss history.
These meet-ups will be available via WebEx. They take place from 2:30 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 and Thursday, Dec. 1.
Over the course of the fall semester, two books will be examined:
- “Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge,” By Erica Armstrong Dunbar.
- “Bring the War Home: The White Power movement,” By Kathleen Belen.
Reading with Historians is an effort to get others into history more than just their occasional run-ins with it, according to Anne Heutsche, a professor at LCC.
“We all are lifelong learners,” Heutsche said. “The history program is working to create spaces to have thoughtful and engaging discussions pertaining to history.”
For faculty and staff who enjoy history, this event is for them. And they should sign up while they can. There is only seating for 15 people. Each person will receive a copy of whatever book is being read as well.
