Why we're reading together

Gettysburg College Land Acknowledgement StatementWhy are we reading this particular book right now?

  • We read together in order to work toward the commitment of our land acknowledgement statement, adopted in 2021
  • We read together as a meaningful action that contributes to the anti-racist educational goals of Gettysburg College
  • We read together in order to prepare for Robin Wall Kimmerer's visit to Gettysburg College on September 19, 2022 (mark your calendars for an evening lecture - open to the public)

Campus Book Discussions - Summer 2022

All discussions will be held over the lunch hour (noon-1pm) in hopes of accommodating as many employees and summer Logo for Gettysburg College Painted Turtle Farmstudents as possible. Feel free to bring your lunch.

We will meet at Painted Turtle Farm, near the Three Sisters Garden. There are umbrellas for shade. In case of inclement weather, we will relocate to Musselman Library (Browsing Room, main level). Please register via Engage to receive reminders and location updates.

Come to as many or few discussions as your schedule allows - readers are always welcome!


Note: page numbers correspond to the paperback edition. The sections are easily identified in all editions.
