The third T.A.L.K. series night will be October 10th at 7:00 pm. Speaker Sister Rosie Kolich will be discussing “Sag Harbor” by Colson Whitehead.
Sister Rosemary Kolich teaches English for the University of Saint Mary at both the main campus in Leavenworth and at the Overland Park campus. Kolich joined the KHC TALK program as a discussion leader in 2008.
Benji explains the central terms of his summers away: “First you had to settle the question of out.” The “out” is out from school, out for vacation, and out to Sag Harbor, but for the African American elites who made the resort their vacation home, the ins and outs of it were more complex. In Sag Harbor, an enclave for an emerging black professional class, fifteen-year-old Benji must try to come to terms with growing up, with African Americanness, and with American popular culture.
Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Council Grove Public Library.
*The T.A.L.K. series is made possible by the Kansas Humanities Council.
