Alumni Book Day Chat – March 11, 2019
Upper Division Book Day – when classes are suspended for an entire day so that students, faculty, and administrators can examine and discuss one book they have all read – is now in its 24th year. The 2019 Book Day selection, Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime, is described by The New York Times as “a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr. Noah’s family, at life in South Africa under apartheid and the country’s lurching entry into a post-apartheid era in the 1990’s.” On March 11th, HM alumni from across the generations, select HM faculty, and a panel of experts will come together over a light meal for an in-depth discussion of the themes and issues raised by Mr. Noah’s memoir – among them apartheid, colonialism, racism, identity, and faith. E-invitations will be emailed to all NYC-area alumni via Paperless Post. For more information, or to confirm the Alumni Office has your current email address, please contact Kristin Lax, Director of Alumni Relations, at Kristin_lax@horacemann.org.
