Spring Reading Circle

The Staff Diversity Development Initiative committee has chosen Alfred Lubrano’s Limbo: Blue-Collar Roots, White-Collar Dreams for the spring reading circle. This book uncovers a cultural phenomenon of people raised in blue-collar families, living white-collar lives. The book presents a thoughtful look at this phenomenon though the author's personal story and those of 100 interviewees, all struggling with the duality that exists in their workplaces, their hearts, and their minds.

The first half of the book was discussed on April 9 and the second half of the book will be discussed on Thursday, April 24 from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. A limited number of books have been purchased to support staff members who are interested in participating in the Spring Book Club.

If you are interested in participating or have questions, please email the Staff Diversity Development Initiative. Participants in the Staff Diversity Development Initiative may earn ten points for attending each of the book club meetings. Visit the Staff Diversity Development Initiatives website for information on participation points, guidelines, and upcoming events.
