Nominate a Title! (Go Big Read)

November 11th, 2009

If you have enjoyed sinking your teeth into Go Big Read’s inaugural title, In Defense of Food then now is the time, and your opportunity, to suggest a good read for year two!

An ideal book selection will have the following qualities:

  • Be readable (relevant, engaging, and well-written)
  • Appeal to individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences
  • Encompass sufficient depth and scope to generate discussions from different points of view
  • Be conducive to teaching and learning with opportunities for integration into academic programs
  • Lend itself to a variety of activities and programming (maybe even an author visit!)

The tentative deadline for submitting a recommendation is November 18 (although this deadline may be extended).

The Go Big Read Steering Committee will sort through the nominations for the Chancellor’s sub-committee, who will then make the final selection. (Incidentally, In Defense of Food was selected from among nearly 400 nominated titles).
