Book Discussion Forums, GBR

October 21st, 2011

As you read the Go Big Read selection, Enrique’s Journey, 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 Wednesday, October 26 at Steenbock Library. The Steenbock Library forum will begin at 7:00 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 can be enlightening to hear what others have been thinking.

Of related information, consider this list of related articles and reviews (as shared via RefWorks) and the Libraries’ Research Guide.

Save the date! Sonia Nazario will speak in Varsity Hall, Union South on Thursday, October 27, 2011. This author event is free and open to all; doors open at 6:00 PM with the presentation to begin at 7:00 PM. We hope that you will attend!
