Book Club: Yellowface

Posted by Daniel Kosacz for Study of Ethics in Society

Paul Pancella, professor of physics, and Victoria Vuletich, founder of Ethics Squared based in Grand Rapids, will lead the discussions of Yellowface by R. F. Kuang. In this acclaimed novel, a young, white female aspiring author obtains a completed, but unknown, draft of a potential best-selling novel from an Asian-American colleague who dies unexpectedly. She decides to revise, complete, and publish it as her own work. Ethical issues include plagiarism, dishonesty, racism and “cancel culture.”

The first 10 sign-ups receive a free book. This book is the Kalamazoo Public Library’s Reading Together 2024 pick. The author will give a talk at Chenery Auditorium on March 23. 

Visitor parking available next to Sangren Hall in Lots 68 and 69.

Students who attend all scheduled meetings of their book club earn Signature credit.
