Fall 2013 Faculty Reading Group
The Joan and Bill Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage would like to invite you to join the Faculty Reading Group.
The Fall 2013 semester reading group is dedicated to the critically acclaimed American writer Anthony Ardizzone. He is a Chicago native, well acquainted with the city's ethnic neighborhoods, and is the author of eight books of fiction, including the novels Heart of the Order and The Whale Chaser.
The reading selection for this fall semester is Ardizzone’s novel In the Garden of Papa Santuzzu. It is an enchanting and moving story of a close-knit Sicilian family who left their motherland in search for a better life in the land of opportunities, La Merica.
The Faculty Reading Group book selection relates to the CCIH conference Chicago Catholic Immigrants: The Italians. The conference will take place on November 8-9 and will explore the influx of Catholic immigrants to America, and more specifically to Chicago, during the late 19th and early 20th century.
Those who participate in the Faculty Reading Group will have an opportunity to meet the author.
If you are interested in joining the Faculty Reading Group please sign-up by August 30 by e-mailing email@example.com or step by our office at:
Loyola University Chicago
Cuneo Hall, Room 428
1032 W. Sheridan Rd
Chicago, IL 60660
Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
We would appreciate if you indicate two week-days and times when you are available, since meeting dates will be determined based on the majority of the requests.
CCIH will provide texts, refreshments, and meeting space.
We look forward to seeing you.
