Book cover for "Never Let Me Go"

Kansas Wesleyan University, in partnership with the Salina Public Library, will host a panel discussing the text, Never Let Me Go, on Monday, February 10. This is the second in a series of three discussions at KWU.

The book was written by Kazuo Ishiguro, the Booker Prize winning author of The Remains of the Day. Never Let me Go tells the story of students attending an exclusive boarding school in the English countryside. Three children, Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy, share their time at the elite school together and years later, Kathy tells her story and begins to understand what makes them all special and how their lives are forever shaped by their experience. The panel will feature several KWU faculty members from different disciplines including: Dr. Jacob Ogle, math and physics; Dr. James Townsend, chemistry; Dr. Phil Meckley, religion and philosophy; Dr. Brigitte McCray, English; Dr. Stephanie Welter, biology; and Dr. Damon Kraft, English.

Light refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the discussion will be from 7-8 p.m. in the Hauptli Student Activities Center, room 203. This event is free and open to the public. The third book discussion will be on Wednesday, April 9, and will cover Rebecca Skloot’s novel, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Time and location will remain the same.
