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.


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.
