I would like to invite you to submit book recommendations for next years Community Reading Project. In the coming weeks, we will be convening a book selection committee to begin narrowing down choices, with the goal of announcing next years book at the March 2014 Author Lecture. Each year we try to focus on specific themes/issues, and, your initial suggestions help the committee gauge what some of those might be. While this is a preliminary process, soliciting campus and community-wide recommendations always reveals new and interesting ideas for the upcoming year! We also strive to create an inclusive book selection committee, so, if you have questions, comments, or concerns regarding this, please feel free to reach out to me directly. Each year there are always some new members on the committee, as others rotate out, and this year will be no different. Please also share this announcement with your colleagues.
Please send book suggestions to email@example.com in the next 2-3 weeks. You can view past selections and more information on the current selection, The Distance Between Us, on the CRP page: http://www.gvsu.edu/read/ .
Thank you as always,
