"Ethics for Jessica: Meditations on Living"

American Studies Professor Emeritus Gayle Graham Yates will discuss her book, Ethics for Jessica: Meditations on Living , on Tuesday, April 27 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union.

"Ethics for Jessica: Meditations on Living"
Ethics for Jessica is Yates' memoir to her firstborn grandchild Jessica, now ten years old, for her life as a young adult. Filled with life lessons, personal experiences, memories and stories, Yates shares her thoughts on family, education, spirituality and the enjoyment of life. Moving through ethical frameworks drawn from Aristotle's ethics and the Ojibway narrative by Ignatia Broker, the chapters develop sequentially through ways of learning, ways of loving, and ways of hoping.
Yates will sign copies of her book following the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
