Conversation With Books — Online

Saturday, February 4, 2023
1 p.m.

A Zoom link will be sent to attendees the morning of the event.


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, PhD, along with alumnae readers Judie Martens Flahavan ’60Ruth Haag Brombach ’60, and Corinne Burrell MLIS’23.
