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 five times a year for a facilitated discussion and the opportunity to engage with one another through a shared love of literature.
The Sellout by Paul Beatty - “Paul Beatty's The Sellout showcases a comic genius at the top of his game. A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, it challenges the sacred tenets of the United States Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality—the black Chinese restaurant." -goodreads
