TALK Discussion of “Caramelo”

Hesston Public Library will host a TALK Book Discussion Series on the topic of contemporary immigration, with three sessions beginning March 1.

A different book will be discussed each evening, facilitated by a discussion leader provided by the Kansas Humanities Council, which is sponsoring the series. TALK stands for Talk About Literature in Kansas.

Participants are welcome to attend any and all sessions, and there is no charge for participation.

“This is a wonderful way for people in the community to gather and examine a timely topic through the eyes of literature,” said Cari Cusick, library director.

Schedule for the sessions is:

  • March 1, 2012 • 6:30 p.m.
    Discussion of “Caramelo”
    Discussion leader: Kim Stanley from McPherson College
  • March 29, 2012 • 6:30 p.m.
