The English Department and Michener Libraries seek to revitalize the "Let's Talk About It" Jewish book discussion group that met during 2006-2007 and invite all members of the campus community to help the non-sectarian group renew its chats beginning with the topic "Jewish Conversation over Three Millennia."

The group will meet from 7-9 p.m. the first Tuesday of every month in Michener 113, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 5, with a discussion of the book of Isaiah, which will be examined as a cultural text.
