This 4-week series will invite reflection and discussion on Max's autobiography, The Real Education of Sweet Papa T. In his book, Max describes a "real" education that has occurred over a lifetime and has provided much learning about what it means to be human and to care for others. His coming-of-age account, which includes at times powerful, at others touching, and at still others haunting vignettes from his life is sure to prompt dialogue about participants' own journeys of life and faith. Exploring a couple of vignettes each week will also give opportunity for conversations about matters of race, discrimination, and prejudice, to name a few.
Class materials: 20 (Please purchase the book prior to class and read chapters 2 and 4). Free childcare is available with a registration.
