Event Reminder: Thursday, 7 p.m. Jesus of Galilee
7 p.m. Thursday, October 20, the Cushing Salon Series presents a panel discussion of Jesus of Galilee: Contextual Christology for the 21st Century, edited by Robert Lassalle-Klein, with contributions by Dr. Lassalle-Klein and Sr. Sophia Park. Dr. Lassalle-Klein and Sr. Sophia will be joined by Oakland community member Marina Zavala, whose experiences are eloquently described in Lassalle-Klein’s essay in Jesus of Galilee, “Marina’s story and the historical reality of Jesus.”
The Bookstore will be selling copies of Jesus of Galilee at the event (cash or check only) with special discounts for Holy Names community members. Get your copy signed by all three panelists!

NEW! AP Images Database
After a successful trial last spring, Cushing Library has licensed the AP Images database (find it on our Databases A-Z List). Search the online archives of AP Images for current and historic photographs, maps, and graphics. Students can use the content in papers, presentations, and other projects, and faculty are free to use the images in lesson plans, handouts, and other educational materials.
