Lunch Bunch

LB 2016The Salesian Center for Faith & Culture sponsors an informal discussion group for interested full-time faculty & staff at DSU who read a book of contemporary cultural concern and share their reviews of it.

Through a generous endowment, the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture provides the books to be read and a free lunch (yes, there is such a thing!).  Participants need only provide their interest and their thoughts.

The group meets three times, at six-week intervals, in each of the Fall and Spring semesters.  Each meeting takes place on a Tuesday, from 12:30 to 1:30 PM, in the Salesian Center for Faith & Culture.
