Aug 27: Summer Book Club meeting – The Story of Stuff

The incoming freshmen aren’t the only people reading The Story of Stuff this summer. Named the common book for the Class of 2016, The Story of Stuff by Annie Leonard is also our pick for this summer’s book club. It’s a very engaging, accessible, eye-opening read, so go borrow/pick up a copy and come join us for a brown bag lunch on Monday, August 27.

Bring your lunch (and opinions) to the Miller Hall Conference Room at noon. Annie Leonard herself is visiting us in October so let’s all talk about what to ask her.

P.S. There may be ice cream. Shhhh!
