One Campus One Book
By bringing to campus an author whose book will be included in first-year composition courses, this program will engage students with a text that addresses a contemporary social issue, encourage them to extend critical and rhetorical analysis to their lives beyond the classroom, and help them synthesize what may seem like disparate academic subjects, creating an interdisciplinary spirit of curiosity on campus.
Pleiades, a journal of new writing, is a great resource to learn more about various subjects as well as find book reviews.
2014: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
Rebecca Skloot, author of the book, is speaking on campus Nov. 12, at 11:00 in Hendricks Hall. The presentation is free and open to the public. Copies of the book are available in the University Store!
