April 18th — The Meaningful Books of…Laurel BongiornoWhen and where: 1-2:30 p.m., Vista Room, 3rd floor, Miller Information Commons
Join us as we learn more about some of the books that have made a difference in the life of Professor Laurel Bongiorno—books that she refers to as her “favorite beach reads!”
Laurel is recipient of the 2012-2013 Edward Phelps Lyman Professorship Award, and continues to be one of the most engaged faculty members at Champlain. Her doctoral research is in PLAY and she tries to practice what she preaches. So, in that spirit, for the Meaningful Books Series presentation, she will share favorite beach reads in preparation for your vacation this summer! And not just a few — she’s a SERIES reader, so there will be stacks of recommendations from Clive Cussler’s “save the world” novels to Sookie Stackhouse’s vampire novels (Book 13 comes out May 7th!) to our own Vermont author, Chris Bojalian –(she just finished reading The Night Strangers).
Refreshments will be served!

If you've been to the Library lately, you've probably noticed the new look of our new books display. Now all new books are located directly in front of the service desk with everything front and center, convenient for browsing. There are fewer books, but we hope to have more frequent displays to keep everyone up to date on what's coming into our print collection.
And as if that weren't enough novelty, we'd like to direct you to our new online source for a complete list of the titles on display http://subjectguides.champlain.edu/content.php?pid=455007. This new guide format has allowed us to enrich the basic book information with the addition of cover art. In the future, you will always be able to check this space to see titles from previous displays as well as what's newest in print at the Library. Stayed tuned as the new book lists accumulate and the guide is enriched with content!

Where and when: Morgan Room, Aiken Hall, 12:30 p.m.
About this discussion: In honor of the tercentenary of his birth, Sanford Zale will argue, in five parts — introduction, narration, proofs, refutation, peroration — that the French Enlightenment intellectual Denis Diderot (1713-1784) wanted to be and was our friend, and that we, too, should be his.

If you have any questions or run into any problems don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to help. And if you have any feedback on the new site we'd love to hear it!
