Beginning on September 28 and each week day from 11:45 am to 12:25 pm through Friday October 16, faculty, students and staff are invited to enjoy a discussion of A Thousand Splendid Suns while eating lunch. Two dining tables have been reserved in the Upper where you are invited to sit after going through the cafeteria line.
One table will be student centered with a student facilitator. The second table will seat staff and faculty and a facilitator. The setting is completely relaxed and informal. You can come and simply listen, share your impressions of the book, or just enjoy being with a few new people over lunch. The lunch discussions will begin at 11:45 am and wrap up around 12:25 pm, and you are free to come and go during that time. It will be fun, and all who attend will not only be in better shape to discuss the book during the Residential Life Meeting coming up later this month but may profit even more from Conroy Speaker Rory Stewart’s upcoming lecture.
A number of faculty, staff, and students have volunteered to help. Please plan to attend one of the fifteen lunch sessions offered if you can. You don’t need to attend more than one discussion but you are also welcome come as often as you would like Every day, each table discussion will offer something a little different from a variety of perspectives.
See below for the list of facilitators who will be in the Upper for lunch each day. Drop by and bring a friend. Extra copies of the book will be on hand.
