All-Campus Book Club & Discussion


Join us as we read Bonnie Garmus' bestselling novel, Lessons in Chemistry, which tells the story of Elizabeth Zott, a chemist who becomes a beloved cooking show host in the 1960s after being fired from her job. It's a book of many things but most notably serves as an amazing example of female ambition succeeding against the odds. 

The book discussion will take place on Thursday, March 14 from 4:15-5:15pm in Heaton Family Learning Commons 232. 

*All are welcome- even if you didn't get to read or finish the book*


Virtual talk on the Cambodian Genocide


In honor of Genocide Awareness Month, award-winning journalist and author Elizabeth Becker will be giving a virtual talk on the Cambodian Genocide. Becker was one of the few female reporters on the frontlines during the Vietnam War. She was also one of only three journalists who interviewed Pol Pot, mastermind of the Cambodian Genocide, while the Khmer Rouge held power.
