On Monday, July 18th the Library will kick-off our summer Regent Reads program, with the first of a four-part series on different types of diversity that celebrates the value and uniqueness of others.
The impetus for the series came from President Campo, who was eager to implement a program for community members in a way that would bring multiple generations together to engage in discussion about interesting topics in the friendly and beautiful environment of the Regent University Library. While the Library’s principal mission is to serve Regent’s students and faculty around the world, we also act as a resource for the local community and hope area families will join us for Regent Reads and learn more about Regent University. Regent Reads will also afford members of the Regent community an opportunity to bring children and grandchildren to campus events designed for all ages.
The program will allow families to explore a single topic together by reading age-appropriate books and then to enjoy an engaging discussion. Selected titles include books written for age 1 to adult. In addition to discussions, dramatic readings, film screenings and a cooking demonstration will help bring ideas to life. We hope our guests will learn something new about each other as they experience Regent hospitality.
