Lauren and I have been hard at work coming up with great ideas for Fall 2010 Honors Book Discussion Group! We’re very much looking forward to this semester and seeing all of your faces again!
Here are some things we have to look forward to this semester:
- Our first book is going to be The Soloist by Steve Lopez. This is the summer reading book for incoming freshman, so if you know any Honors freshman, invite them to the first meeting! The meeting will take place during the week of September 7. Exact time and date are still TBD.
- Other possible reads this summer include Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson, The Giver by Lois Lowry, The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, and The Rum Diary by Hunter Thompson.
- We are working on getting approval for a social event hosted by the Honors Book Discussion. This event would include Ghost Stories, team building, a Halloween movie based off of a book, and of course FOOD. More details will be given as things progress. If anyone is interested in volunteering to help make this event possible, please let us know!
Please continue to promote the Honors Book Discussion. If any of you are Honors Peer Mentors, please encourage your Mentee to join! Lauren and I will be at the Honors Group Fair on August 31 to help promote our group!
And remember YOU DON’T HAVE TO FINISH THE BOOK!!!!!
