Next TU Book Club discussion to focus on ‘Our Souls at Night’

Dr. Christine Peterson will discuss Kent Haruf’s “Our Souls at Night” at Thomas University’s next Book Club meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Kent Harif’s “Our Souls at Night” was voted “A Best Book of the Year” by The Boston Globe, St. Louis Post-Dispatch and The Denver Post. “Our Souls at Night” is about a widow and widower who are neighbors and find companionship on their journey for a second chance at love.

Dr. Peterson is a retired professor emerita at Northern Illinois University, where she taught courses in literature and writing. She also developed undergraduate and graduate programs in technical writing that focused on bridging academic theory and professional practice. That interest came from both her research in “real-world” writing and her many years as a consultant in business and technical communications with major Fortune 500 companies as clients. Dr. Peterson completed her bachelor’s degree and doctorate at the University of Illinois, and her master’s degree at Northwestern University.

The Book Club meeting is part of Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU). For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email Visit to learn about other ACTU events.
