Hello all,

Provisions is proud to announce its’ new endeavor; Provisions’ Reading Group. The Provisions Reading Group is open to all faculty, staff, and administration at the college. The book club will meet every fourth Wednesday of the month in the Basement of the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary from 12:00-1:15pm. Feel free to bring a bagged lunch and/or refreshments!

We hope you can join us for a conversation about The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher’s Life, by Parker J. Palmer! (Copies of the book are available at the library- see Shawn Gilligan!)

Dates and reading/discussion goals:

  • 9/28: Introduction – Chapter 2
  • 10/26: Chapter 3 – Chapter 5
  • 11/30: Chapter 6 – Afterword

** Space is limited, so please RSVP to Liz Richards at richarde@strose.edu.** 

Provisions’ mission values teaching as an endeavor that requires ongoing inquiry and reflection. In keeping with this, the reading group aims to create a safe space for talking about our primary purpose here at the college: educa4ng students. Our teaching lives are clearly affected by our workplace environment, so these sensitive topics might also be a part of the conversatioon. We do request that all participants come with an open heart and mind.
