Dr. Jim Lile, associate professor of theatre at Missouri Southern State University will moderate. The community is invited to participate.

The thing that makes you exceptional, if you are at all, is inevitably that which must also make you lonely.

Participants, who will be distributed individual copies of the titles, will be asked to donate them back to the Spiva Library.
