Quincy University will host a speaker series this fall that is based on the book, This I Believe by Jay Allison and Dan Geidman. This I Believe is the common read text used in many QU classes this fall. The book is a collection of 80 short essays that focus on the different authors’ personal statements of belief.

The series begins on Monday, September 26th at 4:00 pm at the St. Francis Plaza, outside of Francis Hall (18th & College). The first forum will feature Fr. Tom Nairn, OFM, Chair of the QU Board of Trustees and Senior Director of Ethics for the USA Catholic Health Association. The presentation, though generally guided by the book, is open and will focus on how the speakers’ sense of purpose, guiding principles and experiences have shaped their lives.

Future presenters will include Cindy Lovell, PhD, Executive Director of the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, Connecticut and Lucinda McClain, JD, Former Chair of the QU Board of Trustees. The final speaker will be a member of the QU community who will be chosen by polling the student body. The series is open to the public and refreshments will be available.
