Discussion Group

The Douglass Forum hosts informal reading / discussion groups throughout the academic year. Typically, participating students and faculty read a short essay and we discuss it over lunch (when we meet during the noon hour) or snacks (when we meet during the afternoon). Students and faculty interested in the reading / discussion group should contact Professor Nick Buccola at nbuccol@linfield.edu.
