As you read the Go Big Read selection, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, do plan to attend a book discussion forum. There are many discussion forums planned in a variety of venues, on campus and off, including one for this coming Monday, October 11 at Steenbock Library. The Steenbock Library forum will begin at 6:30 PM in Room 340.
Discussion forums provide a great opportunity to wrangle with the issues raised by a book as those issues are examined by a community of readers who bring their knowledge, experience and reflections to the table. For students, insight drawn there can often make for a more satisfying reading experience and serve to help you with related class exercises. It is also just plain fun to hear what others have been thinking.
