Caste: the he Origins of Our Discontents by isabel wilkerson - hollins alumnae-led experiential book study group Experiential Book Study Group & General Interest Session

Led by alumnae Debra Susan Abbott and Marianne Bingham Rowe both class of 1974. This offering is a journey of individual and collective learning, discovery, and reflection based on the group’s reading of Caste: The Origins of our Discontents by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson.

The group will meet every 2 weeks for 3 months on Monday starting on September 13 from 6:30-8 p.m. (Eastern) / 5:30-7 p.m. (Central) / 3:30-5 p.m. (Pacific).

Participants are committed to asking “what do I need to change in myself” in service of bringing our culture to a new level of relationship and a high level of being with each other that holds each and every being in reverence for their life, talents, and gifts. Class size is limited to 12 participants.

UPDATE: The first cohort is currently full. Please be on the lookout for a winter cohort.
