More Upcoming Events: Common Book @ Windward Community College

Brian Richardson just e-mailed that "Thomas Friedman’s “The World is Flat” and Barbara Ehrenreich’s “Nickel and Dimed” will be the focus of a community-wide Common Book project coordinated by Windward Community College in Käne‘ohe.

The project, which gets under way this fall, will encourage people to read and talk about both books. Public events such as movies, lectures and discussions that connect to various themes in the book will be held at WCC.

The events will begin in September 2006, and run until April 2007. Teachers will also be encouraged to talk about the books in their classes. Check here for Details.

Ehrenreich’s “Nickel and Dimed” is a modern classic. It was great to hear her at campus last year.
