Beginning in the Fall 2020 term, this discussion series focuses on resources (books, movies, other media) available through the Bailey Library for users to explore and discuss. Selections are related to monthly themes associated with the Library's outreach, but suggestions are welcomed.
The goal of these discussions are to take a new look at perspectives or stories about the diversity in experiences that we all share.
This series of conversations will also take cues from the twitter hashtag #OwnVoices when it comes to resources discussed. Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the hashtag and the associated article about why it is important.
Book Discussions are held every third Tuesday from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Check the meeting announcements on the Bailey Library main page for the link to the Zoom meeting.

While informal, this discussion group is built on a foundation of mutual respect and sharing of personal insights and experiences. As such, there are certain guidelines that all participants must agree to in order to have a fulfilling and rewarding experience. The Librarian is a facilitator of this series and will work to encourage participants in respectful and engaging dialogue.
Please ensure you have reviewed the materials before the start of the discussion and prepare to share 1-2 observations or questions you may have with the group.
