Book Discussion of "Citizen: An American Lyric"


Sunday, Oct. 15, 10:30 a.m. 
Held at a private home in the Phoenix area

Save the date for a shared learning experience that appeals to the student in each of us!

As you may know, incoming first-year students are assigned a book to read over the summer. They then hear a presentation by the author during Orientation and participate in small-group discussions facilitated by Brandeis faculty. This program, called the New Student Forum, has been part of Orientation for more than 20 years.

We invite you to experience the New Student Forum as Brandeis alumni, parents and grandparents! In addition to discussing the book as a group, we will also have the opportunity to view the author's engaging presentation to the students. This year's book will be "Citizen: An American Lyric" by Claudia Rankin.

We are holding this event in collaboration with the Brandeis National Committee, which organized it 12 years ago as part of its learning opportunities study group programming.

Registration and location details to follow.

We look forward to an inspiring and intellectual discussion with friends, and welcome all who would like to attend!

An additional book discussion featuring a book from a past New Student Forum is taking place in August. The event is sponsored by the Brandeis National Committee and is open to all!

Sunday, Aug. 13, 10:30 a.m., "Anil's Ghost" at the home of Nancy Sacks. RSVP to Nancy at
