According to Professor Carrie Brown, students ask for summer reading recommendations every year, so last summer she had the brilliant idea to begin a summer reading book club for Sweet Briar students, faculty, staff, alumnae, and friends. For summer 2011 she has chosen three books: Bel Canto by Ann Pratchett (June), Small Island by Andrea Levy (July), and 31 Hours by Masha Hamilton (August).
Several faculty members and some students (myself included) will be blogging about their thoughts and experiences reading the book. Please feel free to read the books and join the conversation! It’s sure to be engaging.
