More about the book club

The Lasallian book club was started nine years ago at the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs (SGPP) in an effort to engage Lasallian pedagogical thinking with contemporary texts. As a part of our Strategic Initiative one, “Live Our Lasallian Catholic Heritage,” the SGPP subcommittee of the Lasallian Catholic Mission Advisory Council decided to expand the book club to include a bi-monthly format and an open invitation to the university community. The book selection for March/April was “The New Jim Crow” by Michelle Alexander.
