Contact Christy Granda for more information about how to join the group.


Known to millions as simply “Sister Jean,” the Loyola Chicago matriarch and college basketball icon invites you into her remarkable memoir filled with history, wonder, and common-sense wisdom for this century and beyond.  A description of the book online states Wake Up with Purpose! is the narrative of Sister Jean’s fascinating life–from teaching at a Catholic school during the Second World War to serving on a Chicago college campus in the sixties and beyond to cheering from the sidelines of a men’s basketball tournament in March 2018. 

This should be an excellent read to fast break into March Madness.
