You are invited to the Campus and Community Joint Reading Discussion event on Wednesday, December 1 at 2:30 pm in the Fort Scott Community College Library at Bailey Hall, 2108 S. Horton.
This event is presented to students, staff and the local community of Fort Scott Community College by a Humanities Kansas grant which provided opportunities to discuss two books, A choice of weapons by Gordon Parks and the other Wes Moore by Wes Moore.
Both are books related to culture and diversity.
The event should last approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Description of the event:
- FSCC Campus and Community Read is a semester-long book club that first read and discussed Gordon Parks A choice of weapons. This reading ended with guest speakers at the Gordon Parks Celebration. Topics covered were topics related to culture and diversity that Gordon Parks faced.
- The second book read and discussed was The other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. Dr. Jason Kegler spoke about the culture and diversity associated with the book as well as his experiences in Southeast Kansas.
A wrap-up and discussions on future community reading events will take place.
