You are invited to the Campus & Community Common Read Discussion Event to be held on Wednesday, Dec. 1 at 2:30 p.m. in the Fort Scott Community College Library in Bailey Hall, 2108 S. Horton.
This event is brought to the students, staff, and local community of Fort Scott Community College by a Humanities Kansas grant which offered opportunities to discuss two books, A Choice of Weapons by Gordon Parks and The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore.
Both are books related to culture and diversity.
- The FSCC Campus and Community Read is a semester-long book club that first read and discussed Gordon Parks’ A Choice of Weapons. This reading ended with guest speakers during the Gordon Parks Celebration. Topics discussed were culture and diversity topics faced by Gordon Parks.
- The second book read and discussed was The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. Dr. Jason Kegler spoke about culture and diversity related to the book as well as his experiences in southeast Kansas.
A wrap-up and discussions of future community read events will happen.
