ESL Book Club *NEW*

The tradition of book clubs in the US dates back to the early 19th century in New England, and there are more than 5 million book club members in the US today. CCAE is happy to introduce English students to this tradition by meeting regularly to read and discuss a book, its themes, characters, and related subjects while enjoying breakfast. This term we’ll read Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich (1984), about 60 years in the lives of Chippewa on a reservation in North Dakota where their cultural identity and spirituality are threatened by government policy. Tuition includes breakfast. Instructor: Joanne Nicklas
