Wednesday, November 30, at 12:30 p.m., the Lourdes University Book Store will celebrate its new location with a book signing and a ribbon cutting ceremony. The ribbon cutting will be at 1:00 p.m.
Dr. Patrice McClellan, Director of the Lourdes University Master of Organizational Leadership degree program, will be available to sign copies of the book she co-authored with Judy Alston, “Herstories.” The book will be available for purchase.
Herstories analyzes the transformational leadership, servant leadership and social justice leadership found in the lives of Fannie Lou Hamer, Septima Clark, Mary McLeod Bethune, Shirley Chisholm, Barbara Jordan, and Audre Lorde. The book not only chronicles the careers and professional contributions of these women, but also uses these leadership models as units of analysis to highlight their effective leadership herstories (as opposed to histories) to inform current practice.
Light refreshments will be served, and there will be a raffle for a bike and a $50 Lourdes Book Store Gift Card.
Lourdes University Book Store is located at 4900 N. McCord Road in the Sylvan Shopping Center, at the corner of Brint & McCord in Sylvania.
