The Corriher-Linn-Black Library hosted a continental breakfast on the final day of the 2012 Family Weekend event. The breakfast was held in the Wentz Reading Room and was well attended by students, their families, and faculty. Donna Jordan, author of Surround Your College Child with Prayer and mother of a Catawba Alumnus, attended the event. Jordan spoke with attendees, passed out copies of her book, and signed copies upon request. The breakfast concluded the Family Weekend event, leaving students and their families refreshed from their meal and fellowship.

About the Author & the Book
Reviews of Zeitoun
“…50 years from now, when people want to know what happened to this once-great city during a shameful episode of our history, they will still be talking about a family named Zeitoun.”
“Had it been written in 1999 as a dystopian fantasy of a 21st-century America in physical and moral tatters, Zeitoun would have been dismissed as laughable or implausible. But read now, after all we’ve lived through and all we have learned about the US in the past decade, it belongs in a category that becomes increasingly crowded as the years pass: ‘Amazing But Not Surprising.’”
“Zeitoun is an unusual book. It’s not a big-screen picture of New Orleans in crisis. It’s a portrait of one man – a patriotic and deeply religious immigrant – caught in a nightmare created by a natural catastrophe, exacerbated by government incompetence.”

We are pleased to offer study guides to assist in subject- and discipline-specific research. This is a work in progress, so we only have a handful of disciplines represented thus far, but we will be adding content on an ongoing basis.
