Book

Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan
Wednesday, February 25, 2015
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

From the internationally bestselling author of No god but God comes a fascinating, provocative, and meticulously researched biography that challenges long-held assumptions about the man we know as Jesus of Nazareth. Sifting through centuries of mythmaking, Reza Aslan sheds new light on one of history's most influential and enigmatic characters by examining Jesus through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived.
Discussion Leader: Greg Sadlek, Dean, College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, CSU.


Book

The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

One of the most revered novelists of our time -- a brilliant chronicler of Native-American life -- Louise Erdrich, returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with The Round House, transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.
Discussion Leader: Richard Fox, Ideastream.

11:30 AM-12:30 PM
1st Floor Michael Schwartz Library

Speaker: Jeff Stevenson
Public Programs Coordinator
Imagination Station
Free and open to the public

Science on a Sphere lecture series continues with Jeff Stevenson, Imagination Station, who will present "Dynamic Earth" on Tuesday, November 4, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm., 1st floor Michael Schwartz Library. The earth below our feet has always been a constant in our lives. However, our planet has been changing and evolving long before we arrived and will continue to do so for millions of years after. Stevenson will demonstrate this evolution on the animated sphere.

Science on a Sphere exhibit
Now through December 16, Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library hosts the Science On a Sphere exhibit presented by NASA Glenn Research Center and sponsored by NASA's Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) Program. Science On a Sphere is a mesmerizing visualization system developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that uses computers and video projectors to display animated data on the outside of a suspended, 6-foot diameter, white sphere. The result is a unique and intuitive educational platform that can show real-time weather, planets, moons, tsunamis, climate models, and is only limited by the imagination.
