Recital Hall, Music Building
Attend the launch of Shannon Gibney's new novel Dream Country, which chronicles the journeys of one Liberian, Liberian American, and African American family across two continents and 200 years. Dream Country is St. Kate's chosen book for One Read.
What is a One Read?
“One Read” is an event where everyone in a particular community reads the same book and comes together to discuss it. Think of it like a giant book club. Often in addition to a shared reading, there are a series of events that give context and relate to the book’s theme.
The event will include a reading of book excerpts, discussion with St. Kate's Professor of English Dr. Taiyon Coleman; author, nonprofit professional, and community leader Rita Apaloo; and audience Q & A with author Shannon Gibney. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
