January's “Leisure Reads” showcases the writings and orations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose life and legacy will be celebrated on Mon., January 16. Due to his demanding schedule as a minister, activist, and public figure, Dr. King was only able to take the time off to write one book—Where Do We Go From Here?—concerning the labor activism that was the focus of his later career. The rest of the works featured here collect his speeches, sermons, lectures, his famous Letter from the Birmingham Jail, and other essential writings. All are available for requesting through the MSJ Library FOCUS Catalog.
In celebration of the fall semester starting, we're highlighting books that will help students secure college success. All titles were specially recommended by Mount St. Joseph University faculty and staff!
