— Catherine Lupori (1919–2014), professor emerita and founder of Conversation with Books
Each winter since 1965, book lovers have gathered at St. Kate's to talk about the best in new literature. Conversation with Books is an opportunity to talk about favorites from the book list, or to help decide which books to pick up next. A book list is provided for those who wish to read the titles before the event, but advance reading of the books is not required.
All are welcome. Bring a friend, a family member, or your book club!
The 2019 Conversation with Books will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, in Rauenhorst Ballroom, third floor of Coeur de Catherine.
Cost is $25 per person, but groups of 5+ who register together receive a $5/person discount. Dessert and beverage will be served.
Park for free in the Overflow Guest parking lot. Enter gate 4 from Fairview Avenue. A shuttle to Coeur de Catherine will be available. Look for shuttle stop signs at the northwest corner of the Overflow Guest parking lot. Handicap parking spots located just south of Coeur de Catherine.
