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!
