Aletheia Events

Aletheia Book Club

Once again, our spring book clubs were amazing!  We would like to thank Dr. Ryan Thomas, Dean Jeff Steagall and Dr. Hal Crimmel!  

Remember, you only need to attend one of the two book clubs each year.  

We have made the Fall 2014 Book Club selections.  I will have some copies available for those of you who would like to read your book during the summer.  Take a look below and call Dana to order yours now!
