One Community/One Book: Workshops for Discussion Leaders

Banner for One Community/One Book 2014

The Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics, STRONG STAR, and the Libraries have chosen Redeployment by Phil Klay as the 2014 One Community/One Book selection. The author will present Redeployment: A Marine’s View of War and Homecoming at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 12 Noon in the Holly Auditorium. This program may also be viewed in Harlingen at the RAHC in the Ramirez Library Room 1.132.00; at the Laredo Regional Campus in the Laredo Library Room 1.101.07; and at the University of Texas at San Antonio Main Campus in the John Peace Library Room JPL 3.03.54.

Conversation is the heart of One Community/One Book. The Briscoe Library will offer workshops in October to support book discussion group leaders and to encourage dialogue about the book. These events are 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.

Book discussions will then be held throughout October, leading up to Phil Klay’s visit to campus. For details on how to register your Book Discussion Group or for a list of Suggested Questions for Discussion, please visit the One Community/One Book 2014: Join the Conversation webpage.
