One Community/One Book 2016: God’s Hotel: Join the Conversation

Conversation is the heart of One Community/One Book.

The Briscoe Library will offer a workshop on February 2, 2016 at 12 Noon in the Howe Conference Room to support discussion group leaders and to encourage dialogue about the book. This event is open to faculty, staff, and students of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, as well as members of the broader community, who are interested in planning a book discussion opportunity. Register online.

Book discussions will be held throughout February and March, leading up to Dr. Victoria Sweet’s visit to campus on March 17, 2016. Details about book discussion groups can be posted to this page by submitting the Discussion Group Registration Form. Please be sure to print out a Discussion Group Sign-In Sheet and e-mail the completed form to Lisa Matye Finnie. These sign-in sheets are an important part of the evaluation and reporting process for One Community/One Book. In addition, A Reader’s Guide with Suggested Questions for Discussion, adapted by Penguin Books USA, is available to help get the conversation going!
