How 1971 Changed Everything: A Look Back at PC History
7 p.m. ET | Wednesday, June 9

In the year 1971, Providence College welcomed its first class of female students, introduced a new curriculum featuring the Development of Western Civilization, and opened the Slavin Center. Fifty years later, hear from Dr. Richard J. Grace ’62, ’17Hon., professor emeritus of history, to learn more about this transformative year for Providence College. Grace will be joined by Joe Carr ’83, associate vice president for marketing and communications. The two will share personal reflections and engage participants in a conversation about their historic memories of PC and discuss topics ranging from the Rathskeller to reflections on some of Dr. Grace’s most memorable faculty colleagues, who were probably some of your favorite professors.

PC Alumni Book Club: Try and Catch Me by Sarah Kirchner ’21
8 p.m. ET | Tuesday, August 3

Sarah Kirchner ’21 graduated from Providence College this May with a bachelor’s degree in English/creative writing and art history in one hand and a published book in the other. We’re excited that Kirchner’s novel, Try and Catch Me, is the next read for the Providence College Alumni Book Club and the perfect beach read for you this summer. Try and Catch Me is a young adult, coming-of-age novel about a rivalry between twin sisters that takes a turn when introverted Ella decides to finally take on the social challenges of her boisterous twin, Sam. The book club will host a discussion with Kirchner about her writing process, PC memories, publications, journey, and future plans.
