The TALK of Topeka


“Today our Independent Living residents enjoyed a terrific book discussion about Zora Neale Hurston’s classic, ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God.’ [KHC makes] wonderful experiences possible for people from all walks of life across the Great State of Kansas. We appreciate all you do!”

—TALK Program Coordinator, Topeka

Since 1997, KHC has supported 180 Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) book discussions at Topeka senior living facilities. That’s 10 opportunities each year to bring readers together with a discussion leader for an engaging conversation about a good book. KHC provides the books and discussion leader to make these lifelong learning events possible. With your help, we can bring even more TALK book discussions to Topeka’s seniors.

Research shows that lifelong learning activities stimulate the mind, promoting a healthy brain and mental alertness.  KHC needs your support to keep these programs free and available to those who need them. Thank you for supporting TALK in Topeka.
