St. Kate's Book Events

Join the St. Kate's community — alumni, students, faculty, staff, and neighbors — throughout the year in book discussions and celebrations at St. Kate’s and St. Kate’s-sponsored events. 

Conversation With Books - Online

Saturday, February 5, 2022
1-3 p.m. CT

A tradition since 1965! Enjoy a lively panel discussion about the best new fiction and non-fiction, with a few selections to enhance our backgrounds in reading. It is not necessary to have read the books prior to the program; many participants use the comments of panel members to assist them and book groups with future reading choices. The program also features poetry.

Panelists include professor of English and Mary Alice Muellerleile ’60 Endowed Chair Kristen Lillvis, along with alumnae readers Judie Martens Flahavan ’60 and Ruth Haag Brombach ’60.
