April  7       Dr. Brian Dillon   ‘Let this cup pass’: Atticus Finch, the Passive  American Hero.

For nearly six decades now, Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird has been widely taught.  One assumption is that American teens should be indoctrinated with the wisdom regarding race relations provided by Atticus.  Yet Atticus is a Jim Crow lawyer whose conscience easily adapts to his political landscape. How might the novel best be presented to challenge young–and old–readers in meaningful ways?

April 14  Don Larsen    A Wiccan in the Military

“U.S. Army Chaplain Captain Don Larsen was dismissed from his post in Iraq in 2006 after changing his religious affiliation
from Pentecostal Christianity to Wicca and applying to become the first Wiccan military chaplain. His potential new endorser,
the Sacred Well Congregation based in Texas, was not yet an officially recognized endorsement organization for the military,
and upon hearing of his conversion, his prior endorser, the Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches, immediately revoked its endorsement.
At this point, the U.S. Army was required to dismiss him from chaplaincy despite an exemplary service record.”

April 21     Lottie Rickels      ‘Twas the Day Before  Earth Day
