General Announcements

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah - Free book for discussion participants!

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in a discussion of the Spring 2020 Common Reading selection, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. This event will take place on Monday, January 20, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. at the Waidner-Spahr Library.

A copy of Born a Crime will be provided, while supplies last, to those who register for this event. The books will be delivered prior to the end of the fall semester, so that participants can read the book over the winter break.

To learn more and register, visit: https://libguides.dickinson.edu/commonreading/

Born a Crime is a funny, honest, and deeply affecting collection that details comedian Trevor Noah’s coming of age in South Africa as apartheid ended. The son of a black mother and a white father, Noah regularly had to acclimate to a variety of fraught situations, forcing him to think critically about race and the country’s legacy of racism and colonialism. Noah’s text is a thoughtful account of what it means to forge one’s complex identity in a country that is grappling with its own attempts to come to terms with its legacy of injustice.

October Book Discussion - George by Alex Gino

Facilitated by Jessica Howard, Library Services
Tuesday, October 29
Stern Center, Room 102 | noon-1:15 p.m.

When people look at George, they think they see a boy. But she knows she's not a boy. She knows she's a girl.

George thinks she'll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte's Web. George really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can't even try out for the part . . . because she's a boy.

With the help of her best friend, Kelly, George comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte -- but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.

Employees who register prior to Thursday, September 20 will receive a copy of this book. Register for this book discussion in Totara via the Gateway by enrolling in the Book Discussion course and signing-up for George.

Deaf Culture & American Sign Language

Presented by Stephanie Kiessling, CAIU
Monday, September 23
Stern Center, Room 102 | noon-1 p.m.

Hearing loss challenges people from around the world. Perhaps you know someone who's hearing impaired, has a hearing loss, or someone who's D/deaf? Maybe you see people using their hands to communicate with others? Deaf Culture identifies and perceives things in ways you never thought of before, something that's unique. With Deaf Culture, there's a cultural and perception difference within the way they speak, the way they visualize and experience things. Without relying on sounds, members of the Deaf community rely heavily on sight for gaining information. Sign-up to attend this session (Totara course key words: inclusivity and acceptance) to learn more about the deaf culture and how to best communicate for a more inclusive community overall.
