Of Interest from Adbooks Listserv

Filed under: from your prof — sunyprof @ 10:06 am

Here is the upcoming Adbooks listserv discussion schedule. Books are chosen for discussion by member voting totals. Check out the annotated list. And note the last three titles by Bloor, Dowd and Lowry. Maybe “different” narratives for “outside comfort zone” reading, heh? Seems a very different direction from THE GIVER, e.g., for Lowry. I’m going to look for these titles at B&N on my next trip.

I thought you might be interested in reading/contributing to the discussion of THIRTEEN REASONS which begins on Wednesday of this week. I expect this will be an intense discussion and you have lots to share. Nothing would excite me more this week than to see your posts on the listserv emails. KES
