Join us for our next book club meeting. All students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members are welcome! 

We'll meet in the Philadelphia Campus Library on Wednesday, November 13 from 12:50 to 1:50 p.m.

This meeting will be lead by the I.D.E.A. student club, and we're reading Good Kings, Bad Kings. 

According to Amazon.com, "Bellwether Award winner Susan Nussbaum’s powerful novel invites us into the lives of a group of typical teenagers--alienated, funny, yearning for autonomy--except that they live in an institution for juveniles with disabilities. This unfamiliar, isolated landscape is much the same as the world outside: friendships are forged, trust is built, love affairs are kindled, and rules are broken. But those who call it home have little or no control over their fate. Good Kings Bad Kings challenges our definitions of what it means to be disabled in a story told with remarkable authenticity and in voices that resound with humor and spirit."
