Diversity Book Club giving away books, reading guides

The AUM Diversity Book Club will be handing out free books and reading guides Thursday, Aug. 30 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Global Education Center.

The club’s first read is The Sun Does Shine, which chronicles the arrest of Mr. Anthony Ray Hinton in 1985. Hinton was falsely accused and convicted of the murders of two fast food managers. In 2015, he was exonerated after spending 29 years on Alabama’s Death Row.

There will also be a Meet the Author and Conversation with the book club on Thursday, Sep. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Goodwyn 109.

To be eligible for this honor, faculty must have five or more years of full-time service at AUM. This honor will be conferred during the fall semester convocation and the recipient will receive a $1,000 check from the Alumni Association.
