Diversity Matters Book Series: Dreaming in Hindi

MCC's Third Annual Diversity Matters Book Series hosts its summer book discussion on Thursday, July 7,  noon to 1 p.m. at the Elkhorn Valley Campus coffee shop. Pam Franks, R.N., B.S.N., from Embrace the Nations, will lead a discussion of the book Dreaming in Hindi by Katherine Russell Rich. In a lionhearted attempt to shed her past-years of numbing jobs at glossy magazines and two life-threatening bouts with cancer-Katherine Russell Rich voyaged to India to learn Hindi, a language with one word, kal, for "yesterday" and "tomorrow." Fortified with neuroscience and laced with humor, Dreaming in Hindi is a crash course in emotional agility in an understanding too deep for words.

Participation is free and open to the public. Limited copies of the book area available for check-out at MCC libraries. Contact bvelazquez@mccneb.edu or (402) 457-2253 for more information.

Weekly Green Tip

If you can, send a text message or email from a handheld device or cell phone instead of from a computer, especially quick, one-line notes. You'll save yourself time and conserve energy. Compared to sending a text message, emailing and text messaging from a computer uses more than 30 times the electricity per message. - The Green Book
