MANITOWOC, Wis. — Dr. Mark Heimermann, an assistant professor of English at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, will present on “Never Let Me Go” by Nobel Prize-winning author Kazuo Ishiguro during the fourth Father Bill Zimmer Forum of the 2018-19 schedule. The discussion will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, 2406 S. Alverno Road.
Heimermann says Ishiguro’s 2005 novel “speaks to contemporary issues regarding dehumanization. It asserts the humanity of a disadvantaged group. In a time of increased tribalism, it asks us to empathize with those who seem different.”
The book group, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Endries Family Heritage Room, located on the second floor of the main building on campus. The event is sponsored by Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, and the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Inc. No registration is required.
