Betsy Beaulieu's Book List

Today we hosted our Meaningful Books Series with Betsy Beaulieu. It was wonderful. While her overviews of her books were brief, they were passionate and intriguing.

A number of people who attended asked for a copy of the booklist. I imagine that some of you who couldn't attend might be curious as well. A number of these books are on display at the MIC. As for the others, check the catalog to see if the books are available.

Many thanks to Betsy for such a wonderful talk!
