The Harrison Reading Community

Dear Harrisonians:

Please join the Harrison Reading Community. In its third year, the Harrison Reading Community aspires to hosting lively conversations around topical texts. This year we will consider Toni Morrison's "The Origin of Others;" Locking Up Our Own by James Forman, Jr; What the Eyes Don't See:  A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City by Mona Hanna-Attisha; when they call you a terrorist by patrisse khan-cullors and asha bandela; Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday; The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs; and we conclude with a return to Toni Morrison and her novel Paradise.

The reading community aspires to bring together people from all backgrounds, ideologies, and interets to discuss text that delve into some of the most complex issues of our time. 

Over a casual brunch, we can raise important issues as we consider the ways that authors confront their topics, develop their arguments, and aspire to engage the reader. 

There are no grades, no requirements (other than asking those who attend to read the text in advance and respect the opinions of others.) 

I have a limited number of each text for those Harrisonians who commit to joining any or all of our meetings.

See you around the house,

Dr. Frank Pellicone
