A New Addition to the SHC Common Reading Program

Cover Art
Tattoos on the heart : the power of boundless compassion - Greg Boyle
ISBN: 1439153027
Father Boyle started Homeboy Industries nearly 20 years ago, which has served members of more than half of the gangs in Los Angeles. This collection presents parables about kinship and the sacredness of life drawn from Boyle's years of working with gangs.


Suggested Summer Reading

First-year Students Are Reading

Cover Art
A Pearl in the Storm - Tori Murden McClure
Call Number: GV790.92 M37 A3 2009
ISBN: 0061718866
Over the summer, first-year students at Spring Hill College were assigned to read A Pearl in the Storm, a true story by Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Students will have the opportunity to hear from McClure at a special program at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21 in Byrne Memorial Hall. Small group discussions will follow the presentation. The summer reading is part of the college’s First-Year Common Reading Project. McClure’s presentation is one of a number of events that kick off the fall semester and move-in activities for the class of 2014.
A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean, is more than a woman-against-the-elements adventure tale; it is, in the words of actress Candice Bergen, “a story of courage, adventure, and personal discovery that will appeal to women and men of all ages. Beautiful, breathtaking, moving, and inspiring.”
