The Humanities and the Professions Reading and Discussion Group was formed following NCG's 1987 Annual Meeting and uses great literary texts to examine complex social and moral dilemmas. NCG book club members meet approximately four times a year for a facilitated discussion and the opportunity to engage with one another through a shared love of literature.
Macho! by Victor Villaseñor
"This gripping novel boils with the conflict of spiritual, social, and economic values during the coming of age of a young Mexican immigrant in the United States. Seventeen-year-old Roberto Garcia has big hopes for a future different from that of his compatriots in the highlands of Michoacan. Inspired by his thirst for the prosperous life that he dreams of on the other side of the border, Roberto steps into the dangerous trail that so many immigrants have taken before him, a trail that leads him away from his home into the dangers of the world outside." — Beyond Words
