Members of the PLU community are invited to participate in a Countenance of Hope Reading Group Challenge.
First, select one of the Countenance of Hope Reading Group keynote speakers’ texts listed above. Then form a reading group made up of at least six PLU community members (faculty, staff, and/or students), plan to meet once to discuss your selected text, and all members of the reading group will receive a hard copy of the book for FREE!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The reading group convener should send an email to Rosemary Raynolds, firstname.lastname@example.org, at the Wang Center for Global Education, by no later than February 12, 2016.
To be considered for the challenge, this email should contain:
