Students in the Cowley/Bloomenshine Book Club meet

The Cowley/Bloomenshine Book Club recently met to discuss the book "Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. The discussion was led by student Tina Wohlford, founder of the group.

The book sparked a lively conversation about the similarities and differences between the economic status/unemployment situation in the United States now and during the Great Depression. Several participants agreed that when they re-read the book to prepare for the discussion, they came away with a much different perspective.

An enjoyable time was had by students and faculty alike during the lunch hour. Watch for information on the next meeting of the book club, which will take place in the fall.
