2016 USU Common Literature Experience
The 2016 USU common literature experience book is How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World by Steven Johnson.
The Connections program has asked that I let you all know about it and I am glad to oblige as a former member of the book selection committee. This year they are once again planning to include our libraries in the experience by distributing free posters/postcards and books to at least the public libraries. You may even have received them already. I have emailed promotional images to all CVLA members.
Visit http://www.usu.edu/connections/literatureexperience/ for more information about the book, the convocation talk by the author on Friday, August 26 at the Spectrum (open to the public and also streamed online), and to view episodes of the PBS documentary of the same name.
I'd encourage you to promote the reading of How We Got to Now with your patrons this summer. Let's get our whole community reading the same book at the same time!
