Green Mountain Book Award Reading Club

posted Sep 16, 2016, 9:44 AM by Peter Langella ‎[he\him]‎

This year's book club efforts at CVU are going to be 100% focused on reading GMBA books. We've created a calendar with a monthly theme and a book pairing, and book club meetings will focus on discussing the books and the theme, including inviting students who may not have read the books but want to talk about other books/events/experiences/etc. that fit the theme. Kind of like a theme-based, choice reading unit, but inviting the whole community to join! First meeting is on October 20th. Visit the library to sign up or ask questions.

Amnesty International's Annual Write For Rights Day in the CVU Library, 12/10

From Amnesty International: "Every year, around Human Rights Day on December 10th, hundreds of thousands of people around the world write letters and send email messages to help people they've never met. Letter writing has always been at the core of Amnesty's work, and 54 years of human rights activism show that letters really do have the power to change lives."
