Welcome to the FSU Catalyst Project!


We are delighted you are interested in reading The Warmth of Other Suns, by Isabel Wilkerson!

We encourage you to invite your co-workers or colleagues from across campus to join you in reading and discussing The Warmth of Other Suns, the book chosen for the 2011-2012 Catalyst Project. We also invite you to join an already-existing Catalyst Reading Group.

To join an existing or to form a new Catalyst Reading Group, and to request a Catalyst Reading Kit that includes one or more copies of the book and a Chapter Discussion Guide, please complete the form below. Thanks!

In addition to providing resources to use The Warmth of Other Suns in book clubs and discussion groups, The Catalyst Project will host film screenings, lectures, and panel discussions related to the book. We are also pleased to announce that The Catalyst Project will provide opportunities for members of the FSU and Big Rapids community to participate in events hosted by Grand Valley State University’s Community Reading Project, including a lecture by author Isabel Wilkerson. Please see The Catalyst Project’s calendar for more information about film screenings, the public lecture, and other events.
