Does community have an impact on identity?

You are invited to join us for the first program in our "On the Same Page -- Amherst" series of events on Tuesday, February 24 at 7 pm in the Woodbury Room at the Jones Library.  We'll explore the impact of community on identity with fun & engaging activities, which will lead into sharing and discussing "The Girl Who Fell from the Sky."  You do not have to have read the book to participate in this time of sharing and discussion about the important issues of identity and community -- all are welcome to attend!

We hope you can join us!  And? Refreshments will be served!
