One Book Villanova: Author's Visit & Book Signing

Speakers' Corner

Event Description:

Please join us in Speakers’ Corner of Falvey Memorial Library on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 1:30 p.m. as the University’s One Book Villanova author, Susan Nussbaum, visits us for a book signing. Her book, Good Kings, Bad Kings, was chosen to be the 2013-2014 One Book Villanova selection for the University community.

Good Kings, Bad Kings is a novel told from the perspectives of several characters who either work or live in an institution for young adults with disabilities in Chicago. Readers follow the characters as they deal with the hardships of institutional life and experience personal triumphs and tribulations.

Following the book signing, Nussbaum will participate in various other activities throughout the day, including the following (which are tentative):

2:30-3:30 p.m.—private group discussion with students in Falvey’s Speakers’ Corner
